What are the humanitarian inclusion standards for older people and people with disabilities?

Humanitarian agencies have committed that assistance and protection will be provided solely on the basis of need, without discrimination. The sector is now committed to developing common standards and a coordinated approach for community engagement and participation. The humanitarian inclusion standards will help organisations tackle the critical issue of how to include those most at risk during emergencies, and prevent anyone from being left behind.
