UN publishes best practice guide on disability and development

The United Nations has published a Best Practice Guide for Including Persons with Disabilities in all Aspects of Development Efforts.

The United Nations has published a Best Practice Guide for Including Persons with Disabilities in all Aspects of Development Efforts (PDF, ~ 1.5MB).  The guide features two CBM projects, one from partners in Nicaragua and one from CBM in Nepal.
 
In Nepal, the case study demonstrates CBM’s efforts, since 2010, to mainstream disability into the policies and programmes of general international development NGOs through their Nepalese national umbrella association.
 
In Nicaragua, the example of participatory management in community-based rehabilitation (CBR) is documented.  The project is an alliance-building initiative between DPOs, parents’ organizations, local NGOs and government agencies, where organizations jointly plan, monitor and evaluate CBR in order to achieve disability-inclusive local development planning.
 
Diane Mulligan, Deputy Director of Advocacy and Alliance for CBM says ‘I have been involved in the identification and editing of these high quality case studies for this UN publication.  Both of them are wonderful examples of how CBM is supporting disability-inclusive development projects, both as an international NGO, and through supporting our dedicated partners.  This invaluable guide provides the evidence-base required to convince policy-makers that disability rights are an essential part of all international development efforts’.
