Abstract

Recent years have seen indecencies of natural and man-made disasters casing forced migration and internal displacement. Examples of those natural environmental disasters to mankind include; earthquakes, floods, storms, hurricanes, landslides among many others. Man-made disastrous include armed conflict violence. Both of those situations are drivers representing cases of humanitarian emergencies that may attract humanitarian attention through triggering humanitarian aid and humanitarian intervention for either rescue or life saving measures. This paper notes that Article 11 of the CRPD assumes more less the same obligations on States to protect persons with disabilities in both natural and man-made humanitarian emergencies, in spite of the differences in extent of direct connection that a State might have in causing or influencing; the degree of severity, the likelihood of continuity, the magnitude of intensity, the foreseeability of aftermath effects, the proportionality of the effects and culpability of minimising vulnerability for the victims. This paper uses the above determinants in evaluating and discussing why the conduct and the accountability of States Parties may vary from being re-activeness to pro-activeness in response to obligations in situations envisaged in Article 11 of the CRPD. The paper makes recommendations of what those determinants imply in terms of improving the better protecting of vulnerable groups such as persons with disabilities in the event of forced migrations triggered by natural and man-made environmental emergencies.
