The World Health Organisation estimates that between 7 and 10 per cent of the world’s population live with disabilities. This means between 2.5 and 3.5 million of the worlds displaced people also live with disabilities, and research shows they are among the most hidden, neglected and socially excluded of all displaced people. This resource kit provides practical ideas on how to improve services and protection for people with disabilities and enhance their inclusion and participation in community affairs. It is designed as a companion publication to the report “Disabilities among Refugees and Conflict-Affected Populations".
Participatory Capacity and Vulnerability Analysis (PCVA) is a risk analysis process that was designed for Oxfam and partner organisation staff to engage with communities. By using participatory learning and action techniques and tools and different analytical frameworks, the PCVA facilitators will support the community generate their own analysis of the existing risk and identify and plan for specific adaptation and risk reduction measures. This learning resource is the first edition of a training pack for Oxfam and partner facilitators to deliver a five-day PCVA methodology workshop.
