In August 2010, as part of the ADDC Conference program, CBM Australia commissioned a team from the University of Sydney and RMIT University to undertake a short term project to report on research priorities in disability and development in Asia and the Pacific region, and on research capacity development.
The project was conducted over a five week period by way of desk-based reviews, followed by semi-structured interviews with key personnel who attended the Australian Disability and Development Consortium (ADDC) Conference on Disability-inclusive Development in Darwin, 14th-17th September, 2010.
Data for the project were also collected at the Research Roundtable held at this Conference. This Summary brings together the findings from these components and presents recommendations for consideration in developing a disability and development research agenda for Asia and the Pacific.
