We are pleased to see that in 2020, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs continues to commit to ensuring the needs of people with physical and cognitive disabilities are included in emergency aid, as guided by the humanitarian disability charter and in line with the UN CRPD.
This resulted in an IASC Guideline Workshop with both the Dutch Relief Alliance (DRA) and DCDD on January 9th. Here, different speakers outlined successes and deficiencies in the field of disability inclusion in humanitarian practice. Additionally, future DRA workshops in mid-2020 will include a special program section on disability!
