Five actions for disability-inclusive disaster risk management

Source(s):  Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery, the (GFDRR)

A recent survey of the literature and experience identified five broad actions that development institutions and governments, as well as their partners and stakeholders, can take to improve disability-inclusive disaster risk management. Those five actions are:

  • Include persons with disabilities as valued stakeholders in disaster risk management activities
  • Help remove barriers to the full participation of persons with disabilities
  • Increase awareness among governments and their partners of the safety and security needs of persons with disabilities
  • Collect data that is disaggregated by disability
  • Ensure that new construction, rehabilitation and reconstruction are accessible to persons with disabilities
