Surge capacity is defined as the ability to scale-up (and down) resources smoothly and quickly, including getting the right people to the right places doing the right things in the shortest amount of time possible.

This paper asserts that the ‘right people’ means a gender balance in our surge practice and therefore more women in surge roles. Women make up half the population, and are disproportionately affected by disasters.
