To ensure persons from at-risk groups benefit equally from DRR trainings, consider these measures:
Recruit trainers who are from at-risk groups themselves, including women and men with disabilities. Provide support and make accommodations where necessary.
Collaborate with local representative organisations of at-risk groups in the planning and provision of training sessions.
Make an effort to promote participation of persons who are often left out, including women and girls with disabilities, deaf persons, persons with intellectual and psychosocial disabilities and persons from ethnic, linguistic or religious minorities.
Disseminate information about available trainings through multiple channels in different formats, including through representative organizations of at-risk groups.
Integrate accessibility- and inclusion aspects, relevant to the training topic, in the curriculum.
Invite persons from at-risk groups to participate in practical exercises when training first responders and volunteers.
Organize trainings in accessible venues and highlight accessibility and inclusion in the invitation.
Design the training in a way that promotes the active participation and learning of persons from at risk groups, by using inclusive language and empowering examples as well as techniques for inclusive communication.
Provide accessible training materials and documentation and make pre- and post-training evaluations accessible.
The breaks for meals and refreshments should provide conducive environment to participants with different needs and requirements to ensure socializing and networking on an equal level.
