2023 Global Survey Report on Persons with Disabilities and Disasters


The report provides recommendations for expediting the implementation of the Sendai Framework by 2030, urging governments to promptly convert policy commitments into tangible actions for disability-inclusive DRR while recognizing their legal obligations under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) and their commitments to the Sendai Framework and Agenda 2030, to ensure the full inclusion and meaningful participation of persons with disabilities in all DRR initiatives. The report also emphasizes the importance of ensuring appropriate preparedness measures, improving access to risk information, and investing in disability-inclusive DRR, including direct resourcing of OPDs in recognition of their leadership and contributions to achieving the Sendai Framework outcomes. Furthermore, it emphasizes the need to implement disability-inclusive policies and legislation to ensure that DRR efforts effectively include all persons with disabilities in their full diversity.
