Advancing disability inclusion in local disaster risk reduction: Analysis and recommendations from the pilot implementation of the disaster resilience Scorecard for cities - Annex for the inclusion of persons with disabilities.
In December 2022, UNDRR launched the Disaster Resilience Scorecard for Cities – Annex for the Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities under the MCR2030 initiative, with the aim of assisting local governments in disability inclusive disaster risk reduction (DRR). The Annex, which is aligned with the UN Strategy for the Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities and the Ten Essentials for Making Cities Resilient, assesses local capacities across 19 indicators distributed among the Ten Essentials. In 2023, it was utilized by 21 cities, majority of which received technical support from UNDRR and financial backing from the Governments of Finland and the Republic of Korea. The Annex employs a scoring system to identify strengths and weaknesses, thereby facilitating the development of context-specific action plans.
This report analyses findings and draws recommendations from the pilot implementation of this Disability Inclusion Scorecard Annex. It finds that, despite demonstrating some progress in certain indicators associated with the Ten Essentials, cities grapple with persistent challenges, and the collective trajectory towards comprehensive disability inclusion remains limited. A closer look at individual achievements across these indicators reveals a nuanced landscape, emphasizing the need for sustained efforts to amplify and consolidate advancements in disability inclusive DRR practices across urban settings.
