Strengthening Disaster Resilience in Small States: Commonwealth Perspectives offers timely and expert analysis of differentiated exposure of small states to natural disasters, including an examination of specific interventions for strengthening small states' resilience to this phenomenon.

This book explores cutting-edge disaster risk reduction techniques useful for informing small states' economic and disaster risk management policies, with the aim of collating and sharing important lessons with member governments, and galvanising international efforts for reducing the impact of natural disasters.

This volume highlights transformative perspectives drawn from expert discussions and analyses of a select number of topics, including, environmental governance; information and communication technologies (ICT), capacity-building, gender and blockchain. The book also provides a ready and accessible resource for policy makers in small states, experts, academia, private sector, civil society as well as the general public.

Gender and Environmental Governance for Disaster Risk Reduction in Jamaica

This chapter is guided by the gender equality principles of social justice, commitment, partnership and citizens' participation. The findings include best practices for an inclusive disaster preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation based on gender considerations. Gender-specific gaps were identified between the framework and actual implementation. Recommendations were put forward for a more effective gender mainstreaming in the governance and implementation of DRR in Jamaica, which may also be applicable to other small island developing states (SIDS).
