Building comprehensive resilience and facilitating women’s leadership

This leaflet outlines two factors critical to the success of Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) efforts - the need to build comprehensive resilience and the importance of promoting and facilitating women's leadership in DRR initiatives.  Published to coincide with the Third Session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction in May 2011, the leaflet gives an overview of ActionAid's experience in DRR and prrovides practical examples from our work with communities living with the threat of disasters.
