Guidelines for assisting people with disabilities during emergencies, crises and disasters

Source(s):  Council of Europe (COE)
European and Mediterranean Major Hazards Agreement (EUR-OPA)

This set of guidelines is intended to ensure that national governments, and their counterparts at regional and local level, civil society organizations and relevant offices in both the public and private sector obtain a clear idea of how to proceed with the provision of disaster risk reduction for people with disabilities. It begins with a set of working definitions and then considers the requirements of good preparedness during all the phases of crisis management: mitigation and planning (disaster risk reduction), alert, emergency action, and recovery. The care of people with disabilities needs to be considered with respect to all of these phases.
