DID4All: Resources for Disability Inclusive Development

Welcome

DID4All is a website dedicated to providing resources and technical assistance on disability inclusive development.

Disability inclusive development seeks to facilitate people with disability to participate in and benefit from development programs on an equal basis with others. It addresses issues of equity and of development effectiveness. Disability inclusive development is both a process and a goal, that seeks to ensure that the 15% of the world's population that have a disability, can contribute to the development of their communities (World Report on Disability opens in a new window, 2011).

DID4All is funded by the Australian Government to promote disability inclusive development, provide quality resources to the development sector and help ensure that Australian Government funded development activities are inclusive of people with disability.

Purpose of the website

DID4All provides a selection of technical resources to promote disability inclusive development and to assist a range of stakeholders, particularly donors who are involved in development to design, implement, monitor and evaluate programs in a way that is inclusive of people with disability. The site provides latest news, links to research and publications relevant to disability inclusion across various development sectors and practical guidance, case studies and resources to assist disability inclusive approaches.

Through a secure login section, it also supports staff at the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) with a rapid and reliable helpdesk facility, providing high quality technical advice and advisory support on disability inclusive development to assist with informed policy and decision-making.

DFAT staff may submit requests for technical assistance and propose case studies relevant to disability inclusion by logging in the secure part of this site.
