A downloadable study, published by GIZ and CBM, providing guidance on how to implement a disability-inclusive human rights-based approach in development cooperation.

Entry points for development organisations

This study, published by GIZ and CBM in December 2012, is aimed at all stakeholders involved in development cooperation (including governmental actors, non-governmental development actors and their partners).

As well as a general introduction to the topic, the study focuses on  applying the key human right principles and the general principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) to disability-inclusive development.

The study provides

  • Definition and challenges of the principles
  • Guiding questions for analysing the relevance of the specific principle for the programme
  • Entry points for development cooperation at all levels
  • Guiding questions for self-assessment (organisation)
  • 10 project examples
