Introduction to Disability-Inclusive Humanitarian Action
During project phase 2, we supported the global Reference Group on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action (DRG) in one of their objectives to operationalize the IASC Guidelines on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action. Our project resourced and contributed to the development and piloting of the learning package with the title ‘Introduction to disability-inclusive humanitarian action’. The learning package consists of seven modules and guidance for facilitation and has been designed to support trainers to facilitate learning, reflections and discussions around disability-inclusive humanitarian programming. It is now available for download. Read more and download the modules here!
Sector-Specific Learning Packages
There is an ongoing need for sector-specific skills and knowledge on inclusive humanitarian action. In Phase 3, we will address this need by developing, piloting and globally disseminating three sector-specific learning packages.
The learning packages will be aligned with the sector-specific chapters of the IASC Guidelines on Inclusion and will include standard awareness-raising modules from our previous trainings.
Before dissemination, the trainings will be piloted in Germany or in one of our pilot regions in Africa. The feedback will be used to fine-tune the content.
