This book includes perspectives from around the globe and explores the implications at the policy, programme, and personal level, discussing issues such as: 1. How can national laws, policies, and regulations provide guidance, methods and strategies to integrate and coordinate inclusive emergency management? 2. What should people with disabilities know in order to be prepared for emergency situations? What lessons have we learned from past experiences? 3. What are the current shortfalls (physical and cultural) that put people with disabilities at risk during emergencies and what can be done to improve these situations (e.g. through new technologies and disaster planning)? 4. How does disability affect people's experiences as refugees and other displaced situations; what programmes and best practices are in place to protect and promote their rights during their period of displacement? 5. How must disabled people with disabilities be factored in to the resettlement and rebuilding process; does an opportunity for ensuring universal access exist in the rebuilding process? 6. What is the impact of disasters and conflicts on such special populations as disabled women, disabled children, and those with intellectual disabilities? Spotlighting a pressing issue that has long been neglected in emergency planning fields, this innovative book discusses how to meet the needs of people with disabilities in crises and conflict situations. --from book description, Amazon.com.Australian Emergency Management Institute (2013), op. cit., p. 3.
