This research will provide much needed evidence on the transformative impact of urban development initiatives that address climate resilience and inclusive of persons with disabilities simultaneously. Persons with disabilities are disproportionately impacted by the effects of climate change and therefore a resilient future cannot exist without the inclusion of persons with disabilities in climate action.
This evidence will provide case studies that can support our partners and influence their work in the first instance. The impact will be measured by the uptake of the research and tracking the momentum of the movement for disability inclusive and climate resilient cities. Our hope is that by next World Urban Forum our library of case studies will have grown to evidence the synergy between the movements for disability inclusion and climate resilience - creating an inclusive and equitable future for all.
