People with disabilities (PWDs) are four times more likely to die when a disaster strikes than those without disabilities. Inclusion and Disability-inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction (DiDRR) is a human right yet PWDs remain unseen, unheard and unaccounted for in DRR. The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 recognises this and mandates stronger inclusion of PWDs. Yet pathways to achieving inclusion remain unclear due to multiple intertwined issues. Some of these include: limited empirical data on the needs of PWDs; enduring negative or disempowering perceptions of PWDs; a disconnect between DRR practices and disability-rights laws; and a lack of guidelines on how to mainstream DiDRR. Drawing upon research findings and experiences in actioning DiDRR in Thailand, the Philippines and Cambodia, this panel will unpack what inclusion means in the disaster space and examine what is needed to push beyond these barriers to achieve DiDRR and greater inclusion for all.

Join the editors of Asian Studies Review, Pacific Historical Review and South Asia: Journal of South Asian Studies to discuss the different demands of different publishing outlets, and strategies for publishing well.
