Inspiring story from Guatemala about how PfR is working with CONRED (the Office of National Coordination for Disaster Reduction) who is responsible for preventing, reducing and responding to disasters, introduced a Gender Equality Policy in 2016 to mainstream gender equality across all aspects of their work.

Document extract

Guatemala is highly vulnerable to disasters. Women, compared to men, suffer disproportionately from these disasters due to challenges in equal rights and opportunities. Gender equality is therefore fundamental to achieve effective integrated risk management. CONRED, the office of the National Coordination for Disaster Reduction, whom is responsible for preventing, reducing and responding to disasters, introduced a Gender Equality Policy in 2016 to mainstream gender equality across all aspects of their work.
