Inclusion Made Easy: A quick program guide to disability in development

http://www.cbm.org/Inclusion-Made-Easy-329091.php

 

Inclusion Made Easy has been produced by CBM for mainstream development organisations as an introductory program guide to disability inclusion in international development activities.

 

People with disabilities are the world's largest minority group comprising 15% of the global population. People with a disability are frequently marginalised and are over represented in poverty statistics in developing countries. Redressing this inequity through more inclusive development practice will support inclusion for people with a disability and aid in achieving development objectives including poverty alleviation. 

 

Inclusion Made Easy is focused specifically at the programming level, as operational staff seek to mainstream disability into development programs, whether at international, regional or country level. It aims to give practical guidance on how to ensure people with a disability are included in international development programs. This guide draws from existing inclusive development practice experiences to identify strategic processes for change within programs as well as development organisations at every level in order to improve the lives of people with a disability.
