Disasters and Conflicts

UNEP's programme seeks to minimize environmental threats to human well-being from the environmental causes and consequences of conflicts and disasters through; post-crisis environmental assessments, post-crisis environmental recovery, environmental cooperation for peace building and disaster risk reduction

Gender mainstreaming seeks to:
Ensure that the environmental assessment methods incorporate gender-specific analytical tools and use sex disaggregated data collection methods
Analysis of how environmental damage from disasters and conflicts disproportionately affect groups such as women and children. Ensure environmental recovery programmes take the specific needs of women and children into account
Support and enhance the role of women as active actors in post-crisis settings.
