Mary Fran Myers Gender and Disaster Award 2017 - Call for nominations

The Gender and Disaster Network and the Natural Hazards Center invite nominations of women and men, or gender and disaster-focused organizations or projects, who should be recognized for their efforts to advance gender-sensitive policy, practice, or research in the areas of disaster risk reduction.
