This report is relevant to humanitarian and development practitioners working in all aspects of inclusion and protection, and specifically in disability and other GESI domains; using literature reviews and critical analysis of key informant interviews, this report offers important insight and recommendation into the experiences of the diverse SOGIESC, disability community.

Created in collaboration between Edge Effect and CBM Australia, this report seeks to answer the following questions:

  1. What are the key areas of intersectionality of disability and people with diverse
    SOGIESC in humanitarian and development contexts, and the issues arising
    from these?
  2. What are the particular barriers and enablers to the inclusion of people with
    disabilities and diverse SOGIESC in humanitarian and development programs?
  3. What principles, practices and strategic opportunities should inform disability and inclusive development policy, planning and programming?

This report presents the findings of a literature review and key informant interviews. Overall, the report finds that for people who are both living with a disability and a member of the diverse SOGIESC community, intersectional marginalisation and vulnerability has far-reaching impacts. The report provides examples from the Pacific and elsewhere, and offers significant recommendations for the sector.
