Panel discussion: Climate, Disabilities and Transformative inclusion

Wednesday June 9th at 15.30–17.00 CET

80% of persons with disabilities live in low- and middle-income countries, many of which are highly climate vulnerable. However, climate adaptation and mitigation policies and programs are hardly inclusive of and accessible for them. persons with disabilities are also an untapped resource of powerful actors for change.

This 90min, 2-part international panel, led by IDA (International Disability Alliance) will unpack how climate change disproportionately affects those with disabilities, introducing practical steps to engage with this community as vibrant changemakers to fight for environmental and climate justice for all.
