Case study: Nepal’s changing climate

Case study: Nepal’s changing climate & its impact on communities including people with disabilities The purpose of the case study is to highlight the impact of climate induced disasters on people living in poverty who have much less adaptative capacity to respond to the negative and sometimes devastating impact of climate change. Despite cursory recognition of the impact of climate change on people with disabilities, very little evidence is available about how they are impacted. Even less is available on how organisations of people with disabilities have been engaged in climate change negotiations, policy-making, and programme implementation to-date. Our hope is that this case study on climate induced disaster that happened in 2021 can make some contribution to this under researched area by highlighting some of the key issues and recommendations we have identified.

Disability Inclusive Cash Assistance: Learnings from practice in Humanitarian Response

This case study collection describes lessons learned from seven inclusive humanitarian cash transfer projects implemented from 2015 – 2020, and five ongoing projects from the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic responses. The projects employed cash transfer in a range of humanitarian crises; using unrestricted cash transfers distributed via different cash delivery mechanisms. Annex 1 provides an overview of the analysed responses and the project briefs of seven of the case studies. The collection aims to benefit both humanitarian practitioners engaged in CBI and the wider humanitarian sector by presenting insights and learning on how humanitarian CBI programs can be made more inclusive, to ensure equal outcomes for disaster-affected people with disabilities and other at-risk groups.
