Accessibility toolkit for IOM Iraq

Location: Iraq

Year: 2021

Client:  CIOM Iraq

 

The consultancy aims to produce a document that will serve as a guide for improving accessibility in the interventions carried out by IOM in Iraq in the field of construction and building adaptation.
After the review and analysis carried out, the toolkit has been structured in a document with two different parts. The first  one includes accessibility and inclusion principles and key concepts, so that anyone accessing the tool can fully understand what accessibility means. The second part is divided into (1) project cycle checklists, oriented to construction projects, and (2) checklists of different thematic blocks specific to accessibility in design and construction. These checklists have been developed in a synthetic way and with the contribution of simplified graphics and allow anyone to quickly review basic accessibility requirements to ideally comply with.
