Vladimir M. Cvetkovic, assistant professor at DAREnet Partner University of Belgrade, Faculty of Security Studies for Disaster Risk Management has published a paper in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The paper entitled “The Role of Gender in Preparedness and Response Behaviours towards Flood Risk in Serbia” investigates the risk perceptions and preparedness of women and men regarding these flood events in Serbia, in particular the 2014 flooding. According to the results presented in the paper, emergency management agencies and land planners should account for differences in gender awareness and preparedness. Based on these findings, doing so may increase citizen participation and shared responsibility under flood hazard scenarios.
