Gender and Disasters Network

The Gender and Disaster Network (GDN) is an online educational project initiated by women and men interested in gender relations in disaster contexts.

GDN’s goals are to:

  • Document and analyze women's and men's experiences before, during, and after disaster; situating gender relations in broad political, economic, historical, and cultural context (Knowledge Generation)
  • Foster information sharing and resource building among network members to build and sustain an active international community of scholars and activists (Information Sharing)
  • Work across disciplinary and organizational boundaries in support of collaborative research and applied projects (Networking and Collaboration)
