Without age appropriate disability data, interventions are not targeted; people are excluded; and the specific needs of women, men, girls, and boys with disability are not met. There is increasing evidence that the disability data collection tools currently available to shelter professionals are not meeting their needs.
We aim to better understand the disability data needs of shelter practitioners to improve the delivery of disability specific and disability inclusive shelter interventions.
Further, we will explore pathways to ensuring disability data is in place before a disaster and sharable with professionals during response.
Firstly, this work is innovative by seeking a more nuanced approach to disability data by understanding the specific disability data needs in a particular sector of the humanitarian response community, the shelter sector. Currently, most disability data solutions lack specificity and follow a one size fits all approach.
Secondly, by understanding local government constraints to sharing data on people with disability, we will explore innovative pathways for ensuing disability data is in place before a disaster and rapidly accessible by humanitarian professionals during response.
The research will identify the real disability data needs of shelter professionals that can be applied in a humanitarian setting to improve shelter service delivery for people with disability.
The project will also identify pathways and options for ensuring disability data is in place and sharable pre-disaster to prevent loss of life and improve response times in delivering humanitarian services to people with disability.
