Vulnerability Assessments (VAs) can be useful tools in providing key insights for NGOs and other development stakeholders. But what is the best way to integrate gender, and how can we use them to design programmes which have resilience-building measures and risk reduction strategies at their heart?

Hosted by Oxfam, this webinar will draw on experiences from development practitioners and consider what has been learnt on the importance of integrating gender issues into VAs.

Join the webinar to discuss these issues and more in a webinar on March 10th between 12-1pm.

The webinar panel will include:

  • Daniel Morchain, Oxfam GB, Global Adviser - Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience & Co-Principal Investigator ASSAR project (Adaptation at Scale in Semi Arid Regions)
  • Giorgia Prati, Postgraduate Researcher, Department of Geography and Environment, University of Southampton & DECCMA project Associate (Deltas, Vulnerability & Climate Change: Migration & Adaptation)
  • Dr Libertad Chavez-Rodriguez, Professor-Researcher, Center for Research and Advanced Studies in Social Anthropology (CIESAS), México
