GDN Partners

The GDN welcomes partnerships with institutions and organisations who share our commitment in 'gender mainstreaming' in disaster risk reduction. At the moment, we are drafting a guideline for partnership but feel free to email us your organisation's interest to link up: gdn@gdnonline.org.

We work with a number of organisations either in long term partnerships or to focus on particular events. For example:

Our newest partner is:



The International Network of Women in Emergency Management


We also partner with:


Monash University's Disaster Resilience Initiative and its Injury Research Institute www.monash.edu/muarc/research/research-areas/disaster-resilience.


See also the Gender & Disaster Pod www.genderanddisaster.com.au/about/

An initiative of WHGNE, WHIN & MUDRI

We are opening a GDN Country Hub at Monash so come back soon to see how our plans are progressing.



The Mahila Partnership www.mahilapartnership.org/


The Global Gender and Climate Alliance: http://www.gender-climate.org/





The United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UN ISDR) is the focal point in the UN System to promote links and synergies between, and the coordination of, disaster reduction activities in the socio-economic, humanitarian and development fields, as well as to support policy integration. It serves as an international information clearinghouse on disaster reduction, developing awareness campaigns and producing articles, journals, and other publications and promotional materials related to disaster reduction.
