The Gender & Disaster Pod

The Gender & Disaster (GAD) Pod is an initiative of Women’s Health Goulburn North East and Women’s Health In the North, working in partnership with the Monash University Disaster Resilience Initiative.

What We Do

The GAD Pod was formally established in 2015 to promote an understanding of the role played by gender in survivor responses to natural disaster, and to embed these insights into emergency management practice.

The GAD Pod will build on the many initiatives emerging from foundational research conducted by WHGNE following the 2009 Black Saturday fires in Victoria.
