Disasters impact upon women and men in different ways, hence they have specific needs, priorities and coping strategies. It is important to take such differences into account when policies and programmes are designed and planned. This bibliography includes discussion papers, case studies, reports, journal articles, guidelines and policies of international agencies focusing on gender issues before, during and after disasters. It was put together by a member of the Gender and Disaster Network, which aims to be an international forum for discussion, networking and information exchange on gender issues in disaster contexts. People targeted are researchers and practitioners working globally and in various disciplines and types of organisations.
