Climate-related hazards, including floods, threaten people’s lives and livelihoods – no matter their gender, (dis)abilities or other characteristics that might make them marginalized (such as poverty, ethnicity, and/or religion) (Mowat, 2015). However, as different people experience different levels of exposure and vulnerability to hazards, the impacts of such hazards differ vastly, often reflecting, and reinforcing, gender and disability inequality, socially constructed stigma, expectations, and norms (Erman et al., 2021). And, while climate-related extremes and disasters threaten people around the globe, their impact is exacerbated by existing layers of marginalization and (in)equality (Le Masson, 2016; Erman et al., 2021). Because of this, there is a need to understand the relationship between gender, disability, and disaster resilience and provide practical guidance for using the Zurich Flood Resilience Measurement for Communities (FRMC) to understand gender and disability dynamics and account for them in flood resilience-building interventions.
This primer is for FRMC users who are in the process of implementing the Next Gen version of the FRMC.
