The publication provides information on the actions needed to ensure that disaster-response is as inclusive as possible, through shelter, nutrition, food security and livelihoods, education, health and protection. The overarching principles include recognition that persons with disabilities and older people must be able to participate in all aspects of humanitarian response on an equal basis with others. The Standards have been developed as part of the three-year Age and Disability Capacity (ADCAP) programme, which aims to strengthen the capacity of humanitarian agencies to deliver age and disability-inclusive emergency response.
