    Sharing and Learning on the Inclusion of Aging and Disability in the Syrian Crisis

    An estimated 22 percent of Syrian refugees in Jordan and Lebanon have impairments. Older persons constitute five percent of the Syrian community in host countries. In May 2014, UNHCR, Handicap International, HelpAge International and the Women’s Refugee Commission convened and facilitated a one-day meeting in Amman, Jordan to:

    • Share examples of disability and aging inclusion from different countries involved in the Syrian crisis response;
    • Discuss ongoing barriers and challenges; and
    • Explore strategies to optimize capacity development, sharing and learning across the sector as the crisis continues to evolve.

    This document summarizes the findings from this meeting with stakeholders, as well as the recommendations for future capacity development.

It can be used by staff of organizations working with refugees and displaced persons, as well as community leaders and disability associations conducting sensitization with the wider refugee community.

    The tool illustrates common barriers experienced by persons with disabilities in displacement contexts, as well as positive practices or approaches to promote inclusion.

    Gender-based Violence Against Children and Youth with Disabilities Toolkit

    Child- and Youth-Led Participatory Assessment

    Children and youth with and without disabilities take a leading role in these participatory activities, assessing the GBV-related needs of girls, boys, young women and young men with disabilities in their community. The youth identify community-led strategies to prevent or reduce the risk of violence and design protection and empowerment activities. The result is accurate and actionable information, effective programs, and protective peer networks.

    These participatory assessment tools are part of the larger Gender-based Violence Against Children and Youth with Disabilities Toolkit
