Diakonia Film Festival: Learnings towards Resilience15 March, 2022
Diakonia is pleased to invite to a film festival highlighting the stories from our Gender and Resilience Project.
The Gender and Resilience Project (GARP) was created as a response to Diakonia’s ambition to strengthen its work on disaster risk reduction and to bridge the humanitarian and development work. The vision of the project was to contribute to gender equality and resilient communities through disaster risk reduction innovation projects. Six countries were involved and together they identified and developed gender sensitive tools and methodologies to analyse risks and plan for how to overcome them.
The project took place in Burkina Faso, Mali, Somalia, Myanmar, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, and lasted for five years. We are now organizing a film festival to highlight the stories, results and learnings from the project.
Diakonia country offices in Somalia, Mali, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Myanmar will share their experiences of building innovative pilot projects with the aim to reduce vulnerability and increase resilience in climate-related issues. We will screen four films from the project, and after that we will open up for a dialogue with a panel of our partners.
Date and time: Thursday 17th of March 13-14.30 hrs, CET time

The Gender and Resilience Project
The Gender and Resilience Project, 2016-2020, was created to contribute to gender equality and resilient communities through disaster risk reduction innovation projects.
By addressing the needs of women and girls, and putting them at the forefront of the projects, a change in attitudes on skills and capacities of women were noticed. In order to build resilience of families and communities women have to be empowered and included in the planning, capacity building and response when disasters happen.
