International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC)

CBM works with the International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC), a group of 23 Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs) and development organisations committed to Inclusive Development.

What is the IDDC?

The International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC) is a global consortium of 23 disability and development non-governmental organisations (NGOs), mainstream development NGOs and disabled people's organisations (DPOs) supporting disability and development work in more than 100 countries around the world.

The IDDC and its members aim to promote inclusive development. Inclusive development means respecting the full human rights of every person, acknowledging diversity, eradicating poverty and ensuring that all people are fully included and can actively participate in development processes and activities regardless of age, gender, disability, state of health, ethnic origin or any other characteristic.

CBM's Catherine Naughton is currently Chair of the Board of IDDC.  CBM works together with IDDC partners to promote inclusive development at the European Union (EU) and the UN. CBM also works together with IDDC partners to promote Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) globally.
