Kulima has been supporting CARE International in Mozambique to develop a project to engender disaster risk reduction in Mozambique. Mozambique has a world class policy and institutional framework for disaster risk reduction, and a very effective National Disaster Management Institute. At the national level, commitments have also been made to gender equality, but at the grassroots level women and girl children remain systematically disadvantaged. This project aims to give them a voice through developing a methodology for gender-sensitive community vulnerability and capacity assessments, based on CARE’s well-established CVCA toolkit, and identify gender-specific vulnerabilities that can be remedied by other CARE projects and programmes. The proposal for the 22-month project will be submitted to the German funder, BMZ.
