Panel discussion on implementation of IASC guidelines on disability inclusion in Syria
Handicap International and the Centre for Humanitarian Action are organising an online event – ”Two Years on – The IASC Guidelines on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action: What Are Promising Practices, Challenges and First Lessons Learned in Syria?” – on Wednesday, September 29th at 12:30pm.
Almost two years after the launch of the IASC Guidelines, participants will discuss about how these have been used in humanitarian practice and which challenges remain:
- What are observations and experiences noted by the affected population with disabilities of diverse gender, age and socioeconomic backgrounds in accessing humanitarian assistance in Syria?
- Have the IASC Guidelines helped to guide donors and humanitarian actors at country and headquarter level to strengthen the inclusion, protection and safety of persons with disabilities in humanitarian action?
- What are the challenges to apply the IASC Guidelines and better include a diverse group of the affected population at high risk of being vulnerable?
