This publication is the result of extensive consultations and a response to the call for clear policy and practical guidance for mainstreaming gender perspectives into disaster risk reduction. It offers much-needed policy and practical guidelines for national and local governments to further implement the Hyogo Framework for Action.
The present report responds to General Assembly resolution 60/140. It reviews steps taken by the Assembly during its sixtieth session to promote the achievement of gender equality through the gender mainstreaming strategy, by assessing the extent to which resolutions have taken into account gender perspectives and made specific recommendations for action. The report reviews from a gender perspective the resolutions submitted by the committees of the Assembly as well as outcomes of major events, including the 2005 World Summit, the second phase of the World Summit on the Information Society, and the High-Level Meeting on HIV/AIDS. It further reviews the extent to which selected documentation, submitted as reports and notes of the Secretary-General, has supported attention to gender perspectives in the deliberations and outcomes of the Assembly.
