This event will bring together self-advocates, families, professionals, and organisations to discuss the challenges faced by people with intellectual disabilities during conflicts and natural disasters.

Inclusion International, alongside the International Rescue Committee (IRC), Education Cannot Wait (ECW), and the International Disability Alliance (IDA), will share what we have learned from projects in Colombia, Niger, Ethiopia, Ukraine, and Burkina Faso. These projects focus on helping people with intellectual disabilities in emergencies.
