Surveys

2023 Survey on Persons with Disabilities and Disasters

This is a short survey open to individuals with disabilities and caregivers related to disaster preparedness. This survey has been designed for a person with disability or a caregiver to share their experience of living in disasters prone areas. It will run until Friday 3 March 2023.

This is a 10-year follow-up to a 2013 survey done by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR, then called UNISDR), to ascertain the needs of persons with disabilities and disasters. Those survey results are still cited today.

In this new survey, UNDRR is again inviting persons with disabilities and other members of society to express their concerns, needs and recommendations.
