CILIFO addresses the inclusive management of emergencies at the 3rd International Congress on Technology and Tourism for Diversity.
The ONCE Foundation, as part of CILIFO, held a Co-Design workshop within the framework of the 3rd International Congress on Technology and Tourism for Diversity, held in Malaga on October 24.
The aim was to know the opinion of users with different profiles (people with disabilities and elderly people) on the elements that an emergency management application should contain so that it is accessible to all people and meets all their needs.
Also, as part of the Congress, the round table on Comprehensive Disaster Management was held with the participation of Juan Antonio Ruso, Deputy Director of Forest Fires and Environmental Emergencies of the Andalusia Environment Agency and coordinator of the CILIFO project.
The panel discussed various aspects of emergency management from a disability and accessibility perspective. Experts like Andrés Balcázar, Director of Disability Care in the Mexican National Human Rights Commission; Parul Sharma, expert consultant in emergency management in the Indian Ministry of Social Justice; and Jesús Fernández Lozano, professor at the Department of Systems Engineering and Automatics at the University of Malaga, participated in the panel. The panel was coordinated by Lourdes González, coordinator of the activity carried out by the ONCE Foundation in the CILIFO project.
