In partnership with the Asia Disaster Preparedness Center, Stockholm Environment Institute and the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency, this initiative promotes the integration of human rights and gender equality into national and sub-national law, policy and practice relating to disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation.
Through technical cooperation and consultation with local and national authorities in Nepal and the Philippines, we have developed a Framework for Integrating Rights and Equality (FIRE) and applied this approach in the context of risk assessment, risk-sensitive and climate-adaptive land-use planning, and emergency preparedness for response.
We have also developed a regional-level training initiative within the Asia Preparedness Partnership initiative with a longer-term goal of supporting these actors to develop tailored national training for local actors.
