We are looking for an individual or organisation to undertake a rapid review of humanitarian interventions in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) and Gender Based Violence (GBV) and their inclusion of people with disabilities and older people.
The selected candidate will produce a concise report on each sector to increase our understanding of this area of inclusion.
The deliverable will help us focus our support for innovation and innovative approaches that address barriers to inclusion for people with disabilities and older people.
We are developing a new portfolio of work on Disability and Older Age Inclusion (DOAI). International reports provide evidence that older people and persons with disabilities face discrimination and multiple barriers to access including cultural, physical and legal /policy barriers. The recently published Humanitarian Inclusion Standards (HIS) for Older People and People with Disabilities sets out nine Key Inclusion Standards for all humanitarian assistance (covering aspects of identification and registration, access and participation, coordination, resources, data, learning and feedback).
Our new DOAI Initiative will explore and support innovation and innovative approaches that have a unique potential to accelerate the pace of the adoption of the Humanitarian Inclusion standards and find new solutions to address the barriers to inclusion faced by older people and people with disabilities.
Pending a substantial and robust Gap Analysis to inform the new Disability and Older Age Inclusion (DOAI) innovation initiative, we are working with sector experts to integrate a DOAI “lens” into its existing WASH and GBV initiatives. This will enable us to begin directing resources for innovation into this important area of humanitarian inclusion, whilst building on our existing relationships and networks in GBV and WASH.
Rapid Reviews which explore (using the HIS as a common framework):
