Age and Disability

Environment

Age and Disability:

Persons with age and disabilities are more likely to be left behind or abandoned during evacuation in disasters and conflicts due to inaccessible warnings, evacuation, response (including shelters, camps, and food distribution), and long-term recovery efforts. Sphere India focuses on the need to ensure that international cooperation initiatives, including development programs, are accessible and inclusive of people with disabilities. Member organisations are encouraged to support capacity building and the exchange of knowledge and best practices on the same.
