Gender and Age

Conflicts and natural disasters affect women, girls, boys and men of all ages differently. Being a young boy, an adolescent girl, an adult man or an older woman largely determines the role and position of individuals in society, the risks they face, the way they are going to be affected by and their ability to cope with emergencies.
