Principles for inclusion Commit to be disability inclusive: – Include disability-related indicators, – Involve disability actors, DPOs, • Establish a base of information on disability in the community: – Identify and assess needs persons with disabilities, – Assess environment barriers, – Identify services and access modalities. •
  9. 9. Principles for inclusion • • Reduce barriers to inclusion in activities: – Increase access to venues used for DRR, – Communicate effectively and ensure information- sharing with persons with disabilities. Tackle attitudinal barriers: – Raise awareness in the community – Provide training for staff, volunteers and community members – Organize home visits – Ensure effective participation rather than attendance
  10. 10. Good practices • Active engagement of persons with disabilities also benefits others (old people, pregnant women) • Persons with disabilities involvement in activities in villages opens opportunity for evidence-based advocacy for inclusive DRR policy (identification of champions) • Adapt mentoring to the structure/working culture of partners • Participation of people with disabilities in village DRR team stimulates them to engage in work outside DRR issues • Opens up community to the larger participation of persons with disabilities in society • People start to see the capacities of persons with disabilities, including in supporting other vulnerable community members
  11. 11. Challenges • Over-protective attitudes of families hamper the participation of persons with disabilities in society. • Families are not aware about disability issues. • Ensure trainings and workshops are systematically accessible to persons with disabilities • Slow integration of concepts by trained partners • Acceptance of guidance/monitoring in working with partners • Livelihood resilience not sufficiently considered in the project
  12. 12. Recommendations • Effective change of attitude takes time at individual, community, and partner organizations level. Ideally, awareness-raising on disability should start before the start of activities (considering the 18 month duration). • Such projects should ideally be combined with other interventions supporting persons with disabilities (inclusive education, livelihood etc.) • Livelihood resilience and accessibility as priorities for persons with disabilities in remote rural areas
  13. 13. In practice Socialization Food For Work program, Persons with disabilities as a village disaster preparedness team members are actively involved in activities at village meetings.
