Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities and Older Persons in the Humanitarian Response to GBV - GPC Forum 2020

Organized by the GBV AoR, UNHCR, Humanity & Inclusion and HelpAge international, this session will focus on the specific protection risks that persons with disabilities and older persons face in relation to emergencies, particularly focusing on the increased exposure to Gender-Based Violence during COVID-19. Through dialogue, this session aims to provide a contextual mapping of protection risks and barriers faced by persons with disabilities and older persons, particularly in relation to GBV.

Field-level practitioners, including Disabled Persons Organisations and Older Persons Organisation, and the IASC Reference Group on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities will share promising practices on the implementation of the IASC Guidelines on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities, both within specialist GBV services and through targeted GBV risk mitigation across sectors. Follow-up actions will be determined jointly to bolster inclusion during emergencies.
