Disability inclusion in Accountability to Affected Populations

A short guide

Aya, Founder of Accessible Jordan, speaks at a UNICEF event for children with disabilities and their parents.


UNICEF Core Commitments for Children (CCC) in Humanitarian Action include a commitment to “Ensure that children and adults with disabilities and their caregivers participate in decisions that affect their lives and have access to safe and confidential complaints mechanisms. Using safe and confidential feedback and reporting mechanisms based on their preferred methods of communication, systematically use their views to review, inform, and correct interventions”. This document provides guidance to ensure that all mechanisms for Accountability to Affected Populations (AAP) are inclusive of persons/children with disabilities.  

The guide is designed to be used in conjunction with the UNICEF AAP Handbook and is part of the Toolbox on including children with disabilities in humanitarian action which provides a package of operational tools to strengthen disability-inclusive disability inclusion in emergencies based on the Core Commitments for Children in Humanitarian Action (CCCs).
