GAD Pod partners have developed a suite of resources to support an increased understanding of the impact of gender on disaster, and to provide practical strategies and tools to incorporate gender considerations into emergency management policy, planning, decision-making and service delivery. Our education and training resources include two comprehensive training packages, developed by WHGNE, and two further packages developed through NDRGS funding. Read the external evaluation report here.

Please contact the GAD Pod if you would like training delivered on a fee for service basis.
