Climate & environment assessment: supporting the Disability Rights Fund, 2013-2016
Evidence on Demand was requested by DFID to carry out a climate and environment assessment as part of the Business Case for the Support of the Disability Rights Fund (DRF), from 2013 to 2016. None of the intervention options presented provide any substantial risk to climate or the environment. Although there is the possibility that they may be adversely affected by climate change, this is unlikely to threaten project outcomes over the project implementation period. There is, however, a significant opportunity presented by this project in terms of the potential of the intervention to increase awareness about climate change issues, and in so doing to decrease vulnerability and increase resilience in the ‘people with disability’ (PWD) target population.
