Disability and climate change: How climate-related hazards increase vulnerabilities among the most at risk populations and the necessary convergence of inclusive DRR and CCA

Source(s):  Humanity & Inclusion (HI)

Humanity & Inclusion (HI) with generous financial support from the Hilton Foundation, wishes to contribute to the analysis of vulnerabilities caused by climate-related disaster risks with this report, in a context of worldwide hydro-meteorological changes. Through it, HI begins to paint a more accurate account of the vulnerabilities related to climate change, with a particular focus on the situation of people with disabilities.

With the aid of a large number of outside documents, program evaluations, research studies, and expert opinions the report demonstrates the following in regards to climate change and the hydrological hazards associated with climate change:

  • It first consisted of reminding that there is a link between a changing climate and an increase in the frequency and severity of hydro-meteorological hazards, with a significant diversity of situations based on geographic location;
  • The hydro-meteorological consequences of climate change are having an impact on the health and economic welfare of individuals and communities;
  • The climate-related hazards are having a disproportionately negative impact on people with disabilities;
  • Climate change hazards are a driver of disability.
