🔎🇪🇺 FOCUS on Anna Battistutta (Policy Officer at European Commission for civil protection policy development (DG ECHO – Directorate B)), who will take the floor on "What EU policies for vulnerable groups?".
📑 ABSTRACT 📑
👉 It is recognised that around 15% of the world’s population live with some form of disability, and this percentage is likely to increase in delicate contexts like disasters. In fact, persons with disabilities are those most exposed to disaster risks and are rarely involved in the emergency decision-making processes.
👉 In recent years, disasters have grown exponentially, increasing their intensity and severity. Despite the visible development in the overall disaster response over the past decades, persons with disabilities are disproportionately impacted by humanitarian and emergency situations. Progress needs to be done to assess the vulnerability of people with disabilities, especially when it comes to disasters.
👉 DG ECHO is working towards the development of preparedness activities, and continues supporting the development of a more inclusive disaster risk reduction and emergency response in its civil protection policies and operations.
🇪🇺 BIOGRAPHY 🇪🇺
