Marginalized and minority groups consideration in NDRA

This document is the eleventh in a series of special topics for consideration, as part of the Words into Action Guidelines on National Disaster Risk Assessment published by UNISDR. This section provides a general introduction to inclusive risk assessment, which pays special consideration for marginalized and vulnerable populations such as women (and gender more broadly), children and youth, older people, people with disabilities, migrants, ethnic minorities and indigenous people, and sexual minorities.

A national risk assessment that is inclusive and helps all within a community relies on the appropriate recognition, appreciation and understanding of marginalized communities. This recognition will enable discussion and thought to be applied to steps that may have otherwise excluded or ignored at-risk people and groups. Development of an inclusive national risk assessment will also require work to build dialogue and trust between authorities and those sections of the community that have been marginalized or overlooked.
