David Alexander and Silvio Sagramola; Council of Europe (COE); European and Mediterranean Major Hazards Agreement (EUR-OPA)

Disaster Types: NATURAL DISASTERS, MAN-MADE DISASTERS
Disaster Phase: Emergency, Preparedness

The publication provides an overview of the state of the art in emergency, preparedness and disaster risk reduction for people with disabilities. It asks whether an adequate level of resilience has been achieved by and on behalf of people with disabilities. The publication begins by defining disability and clarifying questions of ethics regarding the right of people with disabilities to an acceptable level of protection in situations of high disaster risk. The publication shows that there is much potential to improve emergency preparedness for people with disabilities, and the arguments for doing so are indisputable
