Introduction to GBA+
Applying GBA+ by function
In this section, you will examine the different ways of applying GBA+ to this issue, based on your area of work (function).
- Vulnerability may vary greatly based on a number of factors: living conditions, location, age, sex, ability, health, and so on.
- Different people and groups have unique capacities during and after emergencies, all of which should be sought out and identified.
- Gather data in such a way that it can be disaggregated to examine diverse population groups. Avoid making assumptions of similarity and consider how identity factors intersect with emergency management issues.
- Engage with key stakeholders (academics, non-governmental organizations, experts, at-risk groups) to assess needs, vulnerabilities and capacities in preparedness, response and recovery.
