Connecting Business Initiative looks at Gender, Private Sector & Disaster Management in publication



The Connecting Business initiative (CBi), a joint initiative supported by UNDP and OCHA, has just launched a new publication that explores how gender considerations influence private sector disaster management, and how the interlinked actions among gender, disaster management and the private sector can offer win-win solutions that benefit people, business and the broader society. The document also presents:

  • a special chapter on COVID-19;

  • a case study on women-led micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) facing a double disaster in a small island developing state;

  • a case study on opportunities for displaced women leading MSMEs;

  • a case study on the digital gender divide influencing women’s access to humanitarian assistance;

  • a mapping of 200 resources.

Please feel free to share the report with your partners and stakeholders.  You can also find the report on social media on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn!


About the Connecting Business initiative The Connecting Business initiative transforms how the private sector engages before, during and after crises. The initiative is jointly supported by UNDP and OCHA. It increases the resilience of companies and people, while integrating private sector networks into disaster management mechanisms.
