Persons with disabilities are often not considered part of the general target group in the humanitarian response. Within the assessment, planning, monitoring and evaluation phase of a project, persons with disabilities are often not consulted nor actively engaged in decisionmaking. This results in a lack of protection and risks of being excluded from humanitarian services. Therefore, training will answer the following questions:

  • How is disability understood?
  • What are the factors that may put persons with disabilities at heightened risk in a humanitarian response?
  • What key approaches should humanitarian programmers consider?
  • What are key practical recommendations and promising practices?
  • What are key resources for an inclusive humanitarian response?


The training will include a mix of input presentations, group and scenario working sessions, plenary discussions, open knowledge and experience exchanges. Following the workshop, participants receive certificates, recordings and training materials.


Each organisation selects 1-2 staff members who apply through the application form. Successful applicants are selected based on pre-defined criteria and will be informed after the application deadline.
Application is open: 12 October - 2 November (6pm CEST).
