Inclusive Household Disaster Preparedness Workbook

This workbook is intended to facilitate a discussion among members of vulnerable households to increase their capacity and reduce their vulnerabilities to disasters. While it gives focus on vulnerable households, it does not mean that households without vulnerable members cannot use it to prepare better for disasters. Vulnerable households are those households with members who are people with disabilities, pregnant and lactating women, older persons and children. This approach of ensuring that all are actively engaged in the disaster-related activities and processes irrespective of their impairment or other status such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national, ethnic, indigenous or social origin, property, birth, age or other status is called “inclusive disaster risk reduction and management.”
