Climate & Crisis Resilience
When floods hit, disabled people fare worst; when crops fail, the poorest struggle the most; when disasters strike, those least resilient are hit hardest, unable to migrate to avoid the impacts. Yet there has been little focus around disability in inclusive climate response and crisis resilience, and even less on the role technology could play. We believe that technology has the potential to support inclusive climate justice and community-based resilience models that can help everyone, even those most in marginalised in the community.
Climate & Crisis Resilience highlights
A blog by the inclusive design team reflecting on why we need climate resilient inclusive design. Through our work on the AT2030 programme we have seen first-hand, in lower-resourced settings, the need for resilience against changing climates and other crises to integrate inclusive and accessible design.
