DisabilityThe Council of Europe strives to promote the perception of persons with disabilities as holders of rights in the same way as all other citizens, considering disability to be part of human diversity. Defending values and promoting human rights through including people with disabilities in disaster preparedness and response is at the heart of the Council of Europe’s mission. The EUR-OPA Agreement is therefore organising a conference (addressed to the member and Observer States of the Council of Europe) on the implementation of the Guidelines for Assisting People with Disabilities during Emergency, Crises and Disasters and the Recommendation on Including People with Disabilities in Disaster Preparedness and Response. The event will take place in Brussels on 4 and 5 December 2014.
