Disability-inclusive project design – incorporating inclusion in all phases of projects 
In line with the IASC Guidelines on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action (2019) organisations delivering humanitarian services in northwest Syria must consider the needs of persons with disabilities when designing and implementing humanitarian projects. To understand specific needs and respond accordingly, humanitarian organisations must make all efforts to identify barriers faced by persons with disabilities when accessing humanitarian assistance and services in northwest Syria and take proactive measures to mitigate these barriers with the ultimate goal of enabling equal access and participation of all individuals regardless of disability. Access, participation, and actions taken should also be captured in indicators to facilitate measurement, ensure accountability, and stimulate learning.
