Prabal Barua, Morshed Hossan Molla


The research attempts to explore the accessibility and contemporary situation of Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) in the eastern coastal belt of Bangladesh in relation to climate change and disaster management. The study was conducted with a household survey of 206 PWDs from the Southern Coast of Bangladesh. Inaccessible conditions were existing at home and homestead areas of PWDs in the whole study area. The overall findings of the report identify a lot of big gaps or undesired conditions about the accessibility of disabling peoples in the study area. At this point of views, the researchers suggested for Enumeration of Disabling Peoples, Establishment of Rights & Protection of Persons with Disabilities Act 2013, Setup ‘Accessible Spot Point’ in rural area, Strengthening of warning system Establishment of ‘Building Code’, PWDs friendly shelter centre and Strengthening of Organization of Persons with Disabilities (DPOs) for effective disaster management strategy development to PWDS in Bangladesh.
