Seeking Gender Equality and Social Inclusion Frameworks - specifically for studying Inclusive Governance and Disaster Resilience

Dear Members,

I am seeking you support for frameworks for two study topics - (i) Issues and challenges in Inclusive Governance (national, government and non-government institutions, community based organizations, etc.) and (ii) Resilience Capacity of the Households and Community after a natural disaster.

I am trying to support the study teams to ensure that these research pieces fully integrate G​ender Equality and ​Social Inclusion in the design, data collection, analysis and write-up stages.  I will also be looking into analysis from an intersectional perspective of gender and other markers of diversity and inclusion/exclusion. Thus I am asking your help with examples of relevant frameworks, indicators, checklists, etc. so that I can help their conceptual thinking and their survey and ethnography/qualitative methodologies

This is a bit urgent for me so any help I can receive by the end of next week - 3rd Nov 2017 will be hugely appreciated.  But information beyond this deadline will also be helpful. 

With warm regards,

Dear Meeta,

I recently carried out a guidance on how to integrate GESI issues in development projects for a Nepali NGO. Attached you can see the document.

Also you will see a Checklist on Gender and Social Inclusion Approach in Governance Projects that could be of your interest.

Hope it will useful for you.

Warm Regards,

Paloma Lafuente Gómez


Sorry I had an error while attaching. 


Dear Paloma,

Thank you very much for sharing these resources with me.  I will soon review them and also share it with my colleagues.

I am appreciative of your response and your help! 

With warm regards,


Meeta also posted this query on Pelican network. Here are the responses from there with full credit 

Dear Meeta,

Hi Meeta,


In addition to these terrific resources, there are some excellent resources around resilience capacity that have both excellent conceptual frameworks – what to look at – and some great process frameworks – how to go about doing it. (Though I would emphasize that resilience after disaster largely depends on resilience before disaster, as these resources point out.)


The best conceptual framework I’ve worked with is from ISET International -- While framed around climate, I have been able to apply it to a wide variety of circumstances. It brings in understanding of multiple levels of analysis with the crucial role of culture, social conventions, and institutions in determining who is vulnerable to what.


Many resilience frameworks in this sector have difficulty connecting local level capacities and vulnerabilities with the wider scale environment that in fact constrains people as much as issues in their own communities. Another resource developed for the Red Cross/Red Crescent shows how to link levels nicely: City-wide Risk Assessment: Do-It-Together Toolkit for Building Urba.... While it is focused on cities, again, the framework emphasizes including people you don’t normally work with and building coalitions, and can be applied in a wide variety of situations.

You can also look at the work done by the INCRISD consortium
It was about inclusion in disaster risk management (and therefore, addressing issues of resilience)
The site is not easy to navigate. But you will find a lot of ideas an resources if you dig a bit.
We developed this simple framework to apply Equity and Inclusion lens to assess different initiatives. We are in the process of developing an Inclusion index.
