Disaster, Disability, & Difference: Study of the Challenge Faced by Persons With Disability in Post-Earthquake Nepal
PDF File Size: 4.65 MB | Download   
This research-based report seeks to empirically assess the contemporary landscape of disability in Nepal, with a focus on the unique challenges faced by persons with disabilities (PwDs) in the wake of the earthquakes that devastated Nepal in April and May of 2015. Recognizing that it is often the most vulnerable segments of society who suffer the most in the wake of disaster, UNDP Nepal commissioned this study to analyze the uneven impacts of the earthquake on socially disadvantaged groups and persons with disabilities. Conducted during the Early Recovery phase, this study focused on identifying trends of structural inequality and social exclusion that affect differential patterns of resilience and recovery as well as ways these trends might be mitigated from the perspective of policy and practice.
As the Reconstruction Phase officially begins, it is important to review and incorporate lessons learned during the Early Recovery period into larger program of reconstruction and long-term recovery. Importantly, this report argues that current historical moment of post-disaster recovery in Nepal and its focus on ‘building back better’ affords policymakers an important opportunity to recognize and operationalize the core principles of the recently adopted Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which emphasize better accounting for the needs and capabilities of persons with disabilities and the guidelines of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction Framework (SFDRR) that historically incorporated ‘explicit recommendations toward a disability-accessible and inclusive environment not evident in previous disaster risk reduction conferences.
