Charter 14 for older people in disaster risk reduction: resilience for life

This charter focuses on the adoption of three key principles of an inclusive approach to disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). It calls for stronger commitment from governments, donors and organizations to act on the shortcomings in DRR policies, strategies and practices that often insufficiently respond to older people’s disaster risks. They must acknowledge and fulfil older people’s rights and engage older people’s capacities and contributions. This charter has been developed through consultations with governments, NGOs, DRR and ageing experts as well as older men and women.
