Working with local, regional and national level government authorities, support will also be provided for gender responsive policy advice on climate change, disaster risks, energy and environment-related issues, ensuring that environmental impact analysis, environmental standards and procedures, and multi-hazard risk information include gender dimensions. In addition, the project will help improve life skills and capacities of communities, civil society and local and national institutions to form systems and networks for disaster risk management.
