This project aims to develop a set of contextually specific indicators for disability-inclusive education in the Pacific and guidelines for implementation. These indicators will assist countries to evaluate their efforts and develop further plans and targets for providing quality education for children and youth with disability.
14 Pacific Island countries participated in the survey, and many provided support by identifying grey literature. Four case countries (Vanuatu, Fiji, Samoa, Solomon Islands) are further involved through qualitative data collection in Phase 1 and refining and testing the implementation of the indicators in subsequent phases.
