An estimated 15% of the world population experiences a disability, with even higher numbers in conflict and disaster contexts. While it is widely acknowledged that persons with disabilities are at heightened risk in emergency and humanitarian settings, they are often not considered as part of the general target group in humanitarian programmes.

Often disability is not mainstreamed throughout the project cycle. Within the assessment, planning, monitoring and evaluation phase of a project, persons with disabilities are often not consulted nor actively engaged in decision-making. The invisibility during all phases in the humanitarian project cycle results in a lack of protection and risk of being excluded from general humanitarian services.

Therefore, technical experts and experienced practitioners will demonstrate how disability can be mainstreamed, answering among others 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) here.
