Inclusion & People’s vulnerability

It has been the occasion to continue exploring the topical Disaster Risk Management towards vulnerable people, after we organised last March 30, 2021, in the frame of Search & Rescue project, an online Workshop on “People with Disabilities in Search & Rescue Operations”.

Vulnerable groups, community engagement and inclusivity being Council of Europe’s pillars, PSCE is willing to work deeper in such topics, in the frame of the project it’s involved in and its own events, including the annual conferences.

Stay tuned!
