The Future is Inclusive: How to Make International Development Disability Inclusive (CBM)

By signing the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), many nations have committed to make sure that people with disabilities are included in all their international development programmes. But how can this be achieved? This publication introduces the key concepts for disability-inclusive development and highlights practical examples by CBM, to contribute to the dialogue on disability-inclusive development.

Inclusion Counts: The Economic Case for Disability-Inclusive Development (CBM)

Based on evidence from a literature review of how barriers in society exclude persons with disabilities from key areas of life, such as health, education, and work and livelihood, this book asks readers to consider the following questions: can governments afford to continue excluding women, men, girls, and boys with disabilities from key areas of life? How can investment in inclusion benefit persons with disabilities, their families, and societies overall and how can international cooperation support this inclusion?

My Right is Our Future: The Transformative Power of Disability-Inclusive Education (CBM)

Inclusive education is about meeting human rights obligations. But it is much more than this. It is also about celebrating diversity, promoting a more sustainable path to development and helping bring an end to poverty, thereby leading to more inclusive societies.

How do we achieve this? What are barriers along the road and how can we overcome these? Is there a blueprint we can follow? Whom do we need to work with to reach inclusive education? How does inclusive education need to be financed? These are some of the questions this book critically reflects on.
