Charter on Inclusion
of Persons with Disabilities
in Humanitarian Action
Key principles to make humanitarian action inclusive of persons with disabilities
This Charter on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action has been developed in advance of the World Humanitarian Summit (23 and 24 May 2016, Istanbul) by over 70 stakeholders from States, UN agencies, the international civil society community and global, regional and national organisations of persons with disabilities. By endorsing this Charter, you will commit to render humanitarian action inclusive of persons with disabilities, by lifting barriers persons with disabilities are facing in accessing relief, protection and recovery support and ensuring their participation in the development, planning and implementation humanitarian programmes. This Charter is open for endorsement by States and governments, UN agencies, organisations involved in humanitarian contexts and organisations of persons with disabilities.
This initiative is co-funded by the European Union Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid (ECHO) and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).
