A gender and social vulnerability assessment approach

Mekong River Commission Secretariat
By: , and 



The report on an approach for gender and social vulnerability assessment is a supporting tool – or a guiding note – to assist the MRC to conduct the gender and vulnerability assessment in the Lower Mekong Basin. While the approach focuses on floods, droughts, and extreme storm events for the MRC’s future application, the overall gender and vulnerability framework described in this report could be applied to water resource development in the Mekong. It describes the steps for calculating exposure, sensitivity, and adaptive capacity components to determine an overall vulnerability score at the province level for each of the Mekong countries, which will shed light on possible strategies and measures to reduce vulnerability and achieve greater gender equality.
