Existing Resources

There is already existing research on climate change and disability covering disaster preparedness and other issues. Below is a list of resources that we have found online through our research.

Also, here is a PDF with more detailed information on the existing resources which we compiled up until September 2016: Existing Resources Extended (PDF)

If you find any more articles or research related to climate change and disability, please let us know by emailing Alex Ghenis at alex@wid.org.
