Summer School: Gender, Disasters and Climate Risk
The summer school will take place in May 2020 and is co-organised by the LU Division of Risk Management and Societal Safety and SASNET.
From the Lund University Division of Risk Management and Societal Safety website:
"After the success of the first summer school, Division of Risk Management and Societal Safety is proud to announce the organizing of the second Gender, Disaster and Climate Change School in May 2020. We endeavour to sustain the momentum to contribute towards a gender-inclusive approach in Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation research and practice. By offering pedagogical training to actors such as researchers and practitioners, we strive to facilitate dialogue, and co-create knowledge and solutions, in developing gender-inclusive designs in response, recovery, and preparedness. At the same time, also contribute towards enhancing capacities so that participants become agents of creating gender secure environment at their respective workplaces. The last summer school comprised of 15 participants that included 11 PhD researchers and 4 practitioners from the field of gender from their respective organizations. These included participants from Nepal, India, Bangladesh and New Zealand. Eight speakers were invited to give lectures over 5 days."
