Cover of the publication entitled "Saving Lives and Leaving No One Behind: The Gaibandha Model for disability-inclusive disaster risk reduction". The picture on the cover shows two people carrying someone on a stretcher. More people are behind them, watching.

One region within Bangladesh has successfully provided disability-inclusive disaster planning. Furthermore, the organization CBM wrote this publication to help others emulate their example. The Gaibandha District in the northern part of Bangladesh experiences floods annually during monsoon season. As a result, they have extensive experience planning for disasters. This publication further explains some of their strategies for disability-inclusive disaster planning. It briefly mentions deaf people and sign language interpreters. People who plan for disasters will want to consult with local deaf organizations. Deaf organizations may have additional ideas for sharing accessible information with deaf people before, during, and after a disaster.
