Five actions for disability-inclusive disaster risk management

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