Introduction to GBA Plus

Applying GBA Plus by function


Using GBA Plus in emergency planning can ensure more effective and inclusive approaches to the management of risk and in the process of recovery.

Planners need to look for vulnerabilities, as well as consider the capacities, resources and skills that diverse peoples bring to emergency preparedness, response and recovery. It is essential that planners do this without exploiting or reinforcing gender stereotypes.

By asking analytical and intersectional questions at every stage of the process, we can thoroughly understand the different experiences of various groups of people and thus improve strategic planning and resource allocation. This will minimize potential negative impacts and strengthen response and recovery initiatives.
