Disability and Climate Resilience Research Project
The overall purpose of this one year research project is to increase understanding of the links between disability and climate resilience and to support delivery of policy and programme work that builds the resilience of people with disabilities to climate shocks and stresses. It will do this by addressing a range of questions around the relationship between disability and an individual’s vulnerability/resilience to climatic shocks and stresses; and the ways in which interventions can build the resilience of people with disabilities to climatic shocks and stresses. The research will focus primarily on two countries: Kenya and Bangladesh. These countries face a number of development challenges, including multiple and diverse environmental hazards, associated with the impacts of climate change; both have already committed to increasing climate-related resilience; and both have track records on disability inclusion. Given the different climate challenges facing each country, they offer useful contextual comparisons from which to develop a range of approaches in this area.
