Gender equality and women as key agents of change

● There is great emphasis in the regions on the key role of women as leaders and agents of change to build resilient development pathways, actively participating in the creation and implementation of DRR strategies, policies, plans and programmes.

● The negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on social and economic development have created disproportionate vulnerability and exposure for women and girls, all of which undermine efforts to achieve the 2030 Agenda as well as regional agendas. The various regional forums have called for the adoption of a gender-based approach that accounts for the needs of women, the elderly, children, youth and persons with disabilities, as well as for a new social contract for inclusive all-of-society approaches to build resilience.
