Gender-Sensitive Rapid Response and Crisis Recovery Policies

Global emergencies, such as COVID-19, present a daunting task for those responsible for responding to and mitigating the economic and societal impacts of such crises.

Neglecting women in a crisis response leads to a worsening of the gender gap in any post-crisis economy, and a less resilient and equitable economy, financial sector, system, and society in the longer term.

This toolkit provides practical guidance on designing gender-sensitive crisis responses and aims to lower the potential impact on women and their families in any future crisis.
