Latin America and the Caribbean is one of the re- gions of the world with the highest exposure to disasters, with the Caribbean facing increased risks given its geography. This combines with the region’s high vulnerability to climate change.. The high rates of violence in the region are equally alarming, with women and girls being the most frequent victims. Humanitarian crises, regardless of the cause, affect women, men, girls and boys differently. Women and girls are the most vulnerable to suffering the nega- tive effects of humanitarian crises. For this reason, one essential requirement for effective humanitar- ian response is that the specific and differentiated needs of the population be considered, including women’s and girls’. Women and girls are also agents of change and can play a critical role in community resilience.
