Linking Women, Peace and Security with Disaster Response and Management: Issue Paper


Sustainable peace and prosperity require the full and equal participation of women. So far, the crucial role of women in disaster management and in building resilient communities has received less recognition than it deserves. This paper aims to provide recommendations on how Australia’s next National Action Plan (NAP) on women, peace and security can be responsive to natural disasters, both within Australia and overseas.

Fanny Berg, who recently graduated from Uppsala University in Sweden with a degree in Peace and Development Studies, wrote this Issue Paper during her internship with Humanitarian Advisory Group in 2018.
