  1. 1. Vulnerable populations: disabilities and inclusion indicators based ICF for inclusive emergency management KAISER, Carlos (1); VASQUEZ, Armando (2); ELKOUSS, Eduardo (3) 1: ONG Inclusiva, Chile carlos.kaiser@onginclusiva.com ; 2: Pan American Health Organization-World Health Organization, 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org No specific country; vasqueza@arg.ops-oms.org 3: UIA, Spain arquitectura@elkouss.es Please add your logo here
  2. 2. 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org Introduction People with disabilities global prevalence is - according to World Health Organization (WHO) World Report on Disabilities- 15%, one thousands million people live with any disability and 3% of them have severe functioning problems. According to the classification of functioning, disability and health, functioning of a person with disability will be negative affected when facing barriers, if this happens in an emergency survival opportunities will decrease and risk of injury will rise. Architectonical barriers and cultural ones make people with disabilities the most vulnerable population. The goals are a) to reduce emergency risk to people with disabilities, b) to render disabilities and inclusion indicators based on Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health ICF, c) to decrease injuries, and e) to reduce new disabilities to happen as a consequence of emergencies. To make substantial progress towards a world safe for all, disabilities and inclusion indicators must be used to assure every component of emergency management to be inclusive for all. Current paper offers disabilities and inclusion indicators (quantitative and qualitative ones) and tools such as the inclusive index calculation matrix, all of them based on the ICF for generating inclusive emergency management produced through documental revision, primary and secondary sources consultation and expert validation, establishing ICF scientific validity as a source for Disabilities and Inclusion indicators production.

  5. 5. People with Disabilities, enviromental risk factors People with disabilities are more vulnerable to disaster because of architectonical, cultural and technological barriers. To reduce Disaster risk for People with Disabilities all these barriers will be eliminated/ reduced, and every procedure must be inclusive, thus making Peñaflor Town Resilient for all 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org

Added value for the Post 2015 Framework for 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC 2014 ‘Integrative Risk Management - The role of science, technology & practice‘ • 24-28 August 2014 • Davos • Switzerland www.grforum.org Disaster Risk Reduction • How did your work support the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action: – Hyogo Framework for Action did not address Disabilities directly, but supported the concepts of Vulnerable Populations, and the concept of Resilience. The current work supports the above mentioned concepts – Current work helps to implement the Hyogo Framework for Action providing an epistemic framework to deal with disabilities and disasters through the IFC from the World Health Organization, Inclusion indicators , practical tools ready to be used • From your perspective what are the main gaps, needs and further steps to be addressed in the Post 2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction in – Research: one of the main gaps is about morbidity rate of people with disabilities due to Disasters. Is also needed to research relation of environment barriers and DRR for people with disabilities and elderly people. – Education & Training: there is a serious gap related to Inclusive DRR – Implementation & Practice: there is a huge need for environment barriers reduction – Policy: policy making need to be more participative, all platforms and content must be universally designed for everyone
