Abstract

This research aims to examine various local government capability for mainstreaming gender into disaster risk reduction in Bantul Indonesia. A mixed method study combining qualitative and quantitative methods was applied to explore key local government capability for effective mainstreaming gender into disaster risk reduction.

Women leadership, local government financial resources, availability of local institutional framework, women full participation, financial resources and effective collaboration with non-government organisations are key capabilities that lead to effective mainstreaming gender into sustainable reconstruction.
