Gender, Age and Disability


Gender, Age and Disability

This three-day course will provide the knowledge and tools to help mainstream gender, age and disability into all interventions so that organisations move beyond simply the desire to be inclusive and into the reality of meeting minimum standards of inclusion.

This should result in building better programmes which reduce risks faced by vulnerable groups and respond to those most in need.

Course content:

  • Barriers faced by vulnerable groups of people accessing humanitarian aid
  • Assessment of risks and capacities of older people, people with disabilities and different genders
  • Twin-track approach to programming and using the minimum standards of inclusion to shape the design and implementation of projects in emergencies
  • Mainstreaming gender, age and disability in activities through organisational change

What does the workshop cover?

At the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • Recognize prejudice and cultural, attitudinal and environmental barriers that different genders, persons with disability and older people experience
  • Explain the roles that attitudes towards gender, disability and age play in discrimination and how these attitudes can be influenced
  • Identify key areas where priorities for different genders, persons with disability and older people can be integrated into humanitarian response
  • Analyse how violence manifests in emergency situations against different genders, age and disability in urban and rural settings
  • Create programmatic changes to overcome barriers of inclusion and reduce the risk of violence in urban and rural settings
  • Mainstream gender, age and disability in organisations through advocacy and influence

Who should attend?

This course is geared towards people who are already working in the humanitarian sector who would like to expand their knowledge and understanding of the challenges for vulnerable groups of people to access services and their vulnerabilities to violence in order to improve humanitarian programme response in emergencies. People involved in designing and implementing programmes and projects in emergencies, advisors, program managers would all benefit from the course.
