Inclusion International: How to ensure CRPD-Compliance in employment programming

  • Duration 55 Min.
  • Video Language en

Inclusion International recently released a report on the exclusion of people with intellectual disabilities in Official Development Assistance (ODA) using OECD-DAC-CRS data. This report found that people with intellectual disabilities are only included in 0.02% of ODA. It also found that much of the programming that does include people with intellectual disabilities does not comply with the CRPD - including 36% of livelihoods/employment programming. This session will build on that CRPD compliance in livelihoods data, and will present a practical how-to for governments, civil society and businesses to ensure that their employment work is in line with the CRPD and with human rights.
