The Future is Inclusive (Series on Disability-Inclusive Development, 1)
How to Make International Development Disability-Inclusive
This first publication in CBM’s Series on Disability-Inclusive Development covers key facts and figures on the situation of women, men, girls and boys with disabilities living in low-income countries and presents the reasons why development and humanitarian actions must be disability-inclusive. In its main part, this publication presents principles of disability-inclusive development which explain how disability-inclusive development can be achieved. These principles are illustrated with examples of how CBM has endeavoured to implement disability-inclusive development, and what has been learned along the way.
