  • Critically discuss the space and location of disability in disaster preparedness and response;
  • Offer a space for consideration of options for non-disabling and inclusive humanitarian practice and global policies
  • Critically explore approaches ensuring that all services and humanitarian assistance are available and accessible to all disabled people irrespective of type of disability, gender, age or legal status
  • Discuss the limitations of policy, rights and services in regard to disability in humanitarian action;
  • Connect actors working in and across a range of sectors to forge alliances for critical thought and cooperative action on disability and humanitarian action.
