In 2021, a consortium of Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund Deutschland e.V. (ASB), Centre for Disability in Development (CDD), Christian Blind Mission (CBM), International Disability Alliance (IDA), and Malteser International (MI) commissioned a study on disability-inclusive disaster risk reduction (DiDRR) policy and practice across eight countries of Africa, Asia, and South/Central America.

The study describes progress, gaps, and identified good practices in line with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) 2015-2030 and concludes with recommendations to support improved disability-inclusive DRR.  The study design, data collection, and analysis were based on the 10 key inclusion criteria aligning closely with the Sendai Framework:

  • Disaggregated data
  • Inclusive risk assessment and planning
  • Inclusive risk communication
  • Supportive governance/policies
  • Direct representation of persons with disabilities in DRR
  • Investments in disability-inclusive DRR
  • Accessibility
  • Meaningful participation of persons with disabilities and Organisations of Persons with Disabilities (OPDs) in DRR
  • Leadership of persons with disabilities in DRR
  • Inclusive partnership
