This compilation of case studies illustrates the close ties between our concern for gender equality and our efforts in humanitarian crises and disaster risk reduction (DRR). They do not claim to be comprehensive, but simply reflect some recent Oxfam experiences in Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar and Vietnam. They are examples of how natural hazards like cyclones and floods affect women differently from men. Analysing the efforts Oxfam has undertaken in these countries shows which steps are possible and desirable in overcoming the disproportionate vulnerability of women in disaster- prone areas and making use of their capacities.
