Humanitarian actors have committed that assistance and protection will be provided solely on the basis of need, without discrimination. The sector is now committed to developing common standards and a coordinated approach for community engagement and participation. This discussion will tackle the critical issue of how to include those most at risk during emergencies, and prevent anyone from being left behind.
All participants will receive a complimentary copy of the Humanitarian inclusion standards for older people and people with disabilities, and the Good practice guide: embedding inclusion of older people and people with disabilities in humanitarian policy and practice.
All speakers are subject to change.
The Age and Disability Consortium is a group of seven agencies working to promote age and disability-inclusive humanitarian assistance:
