Climate Change, Aging and Disability: Life Experience of Being Old, Disabled and Affected by Climate-Induced Disasters in China

Alternative Title
Climate change is predicted to disproportionately affect the world’s poorest and most vulnerable groups of people like persons with disability (PWDs). While much research on climate change is ongoing, it’s yet to devote considerable attention to study its impact on PWDs. To this matter, China and Uganda remain susceptible to climate-induced disasters since they are located in the most affected regions. Also, the pace of the aging population in both countries is substantially increasing. Bearing this in mind, therefore, the project is set to explore what could be the risk of climate-induced disasters on the elderly PWDs in China and Uganda.
