The comprehensive toolkit provides a step by step approach for the inclusion of disability in disaster management. 

  • It provides the user with a resource to help plan in mainstreaming disability in disaster management
  • A guidance note, which summarizes the mainstreaming needs and enables users to understand them from the perspective of a Person with Disability.
  • A guidance on the most appropriate methodology to be adopted for including disability in the disaster management process, to monitor and evaluate it; a good practice scenario and a road map.
  • A checklist for use and FAQs are provided in the last section. Section wise essential readings and a reference, which refers specifically to the issue, has been provided to give the background and deeper understanding. Most of these are accessible through the Internet. At the end of the document additional references are provided. This section refers to the most important writings, handbooks and guidelines available. As very few resources have been developed on the subject, generic material has been included

​This toolkit is intended for use by policy makers, government officials, members of Panchayati Raj Institutions, non-government organisations, disabled peoples organisations and disaster management practitioners

This toolkit addresses the technical and the administrative as well as the social aspects of camp management. It focuses specifically on individual camp managers, camp management teams and camp management agencies. It compiles and complements the existing sectoral guidelines for various assistance and protection activities in camps.
The toolkit is part of a holistic process that aims at covering the full spectrum of camp management activities. The objectives of the Camp management toolkit are: (a) to define and compile information on all aspects of camp operations; (b) to define roles and responsibilities in relation to each topic; (c) to provide both practical and reference tools to support the daily work, including checklists, monitoring forms and practical guidelines; (d) to consider vulnerable groups in the coordination of the camp.
Camps for displaced persons must always be seen as part of a larger context. Strengthening the capacity of the local community to cope with a large influx of displaced persons should be a priority, and supplementary humanitarian assistance to the local community should always be considered
