To ensure full autonomy to individuals, a crucial step is to ensure PROTECTION*, and
accessibility is a key condition to enhance protection activities.
*
the following definitions are given according to UNRWA guidelines
Accessibility contributes to the
safety and dignity
of beneficiaries & staff:
UNRWA actions shall not cause unintended harm or result in reduced protection of beneficiaries, communities
or colleagues.

Accessibility boosts the
Equity and impartiality of UNRWA service delivery:
UNRWA services promote full and equal respect for the rights of all refugees without discrimination of any kind, such as ethnic origin, gender, age, political opinions, religion, socioeconomic status,
disability
, etc.


Accessibility is a ey protection element in itself:
UNRWA services should be accessible to all who have a right to receive them.
Programs should also provide clear information to all persons regarding their right to assistance and the means for them to access it.

Accessibility facilitates the
participation
of Palestine refugees as partners:
The refugee population shall be allowed to actively participate in the assessment, design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of UNRWA services.
Meaningful participation means that the community is not just informed but integrally involved as partners.

Accessibility can improve
internal and external coordination:
All personnel who deal with beneficiaries must understand that it is their responsibility to report any abuse or neglect of refugee rights that they encounter.
UNRWA personnel should give particular attention to incidents involving child abuse or gender based violence.


Accessibility is crucial when
targeted service delivery
addresses specific protection vulnerabilities / rights:
UNRWA services must target specific protection vulnerabilities. This may take the form of specifically targeted
assistance or increased access to UNRWA core services for vulnerable individuals and groups
Accessibility is a key topic for
advocacy:
UNRWA advocates for the rights of Palestine refugees in order to prevent or put a stop to a situation of abuse or neglect.

The 7 Principles of Universal Design were developed in
1997
by a working group of architects, product designers, engineers and environmental design researchers in the
North Carolina State University.

The purpose of the Principles is to
guide the design of environments, products and communications.


The Principles "may be applied to
evaluate
existing designs,
guide
the design process and
educate
both designers and consumers about the characteristics of more usable products and environments."

UD can be applied to any product or environment, such as curricula, multimedia, learning centers,
conference exhibits, museums,
microwave ovens,
recreational areas, homes, computer labs, worksites,
web pages, etc.
I.e.
A door provided with opening sensors convenient for all users;
a website that is designed to be accessible to everyone, including people who are blind and use screen reader technology.
I.e.
a museum/ATM/etc. that allows visitors to choose to read or listen to the description of the contents of a display case;
a left-and-right handed users scissors;
i.e.
Health science lab equipment with clear and intuitive control buttons;

i.e.
the UNDO button which allows to correct mistakes;
a double-cut car key that can be inserted in the keyhole no matter in which direction.
i.e.
doors that open automatically for people with a wide variety of physical characteristics;
