From the U.N.:
"The experience, knowledge and expertise of women and girls are critical to climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction strategies and processes. Studies show household adaptation measures are more likely to take root if women are included in processes from the beginning to end and it is essential that women and girls are actively involved in policy, planning and implementation processes for disaster reduction."
On Friday, October 12, we will be observing the International Day for Disaster Reduction (IDDR).
