According to an article published on Relief Web:
Asia-Pacific is the world’s most disaster-prone region, and is home to an estimated 650 million people with disabilities. People with disabilities are four times more likely to die in a disaster than people without disabilities. However, they remain largely unaccounted for in most disaster risk reduction (DRR) plans and policies.
The Maps&Cards for DRR project will focus on the inclusion of persons-with-disability in local DRR planning.
Maps&Cards for DRR offers an innovative and creative solution to ensure persons with disabilities are part of the DRR planning process. This set of community-based activities ensure that the voices and needs of people with disabilities are heard, considered, and incorporated in local DRRM planning and management – specifically in contingency planning.
