Emergency response is always conducted with the long-term goal of gender equality in mind. Recognising and responding to gender differences is an important step in improving the quality of emergency aid and ‘The Little Gender Handbook for Emergencies’ includes a number of helpful checklists for conducting a gender-aware response.
