Disability and climate change

Inclusion - key to sustainability

Collectively, persons with disabilities are one of the most resource-poor groups in the world, and often face further marginalisation due to intersecting factors such as gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religious adherence, level of education, and geographical location. Hence, they are globally among the most at-risk people to the impacts of climate change. Practically, this means they are living with significant climate-related issues including: increasing storms, floods and landslides; coastal inundation; droughts; wildfires; degradation of land, resources, infrastructure and living environments; extremes of temperature; and growing unpredictability and uncertainty.
