The Women International Network on Disaster Risk Reduction Philippines Chapter (WINDRR PH) was officially launched on 26 April 2023, garnering local and international support for women's leadership in disaster risk reduction.

To implement DRR policies and plans, all stakeholders need to be engaged, at every stage. Those most at risk are often disadvantaged through lack of access to resources, power, and influence – like persons with disabilities, local communities, and women.
This review makes the case that gender is such a fundamental part of the social organization in all societies, that gender inequality is a key driver of disaster risk, requiring much greater attention and more focused action and resources.
On International Women’s Day 2023, we celebrate the women who are transforming disaster risk reduction planning and implementation to make it more gender responsive and inclusive and therefore more effective.
