The main objective of this manual is to build actors' capacities to mainstream disability in disaster risk reduction. It is intended to actors working in disaster management to enable them to take disability systematically into account in their planning and implementation of activities. It also targets actors working in the disability field to improve their knowledge on disability and disaster risk reduction, so they can advocate for and technically support disability-inclusive disaster risk reduction.
Ultimately, it aimed to be utilized as an advocacy and planning tool for donors and governments, as it highlights the particular problems and risks that persons with disabilities face in disasters, as well as possible solutions.
