Over the last ten years, Norway has strengthened its commitment towards persons with disabilities in numerous ways. Norway ratified the Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disability in 2013 and is -together with the rest of the UN members states committed to the Sustainable Development Agenda. In addition, Norway’s commitment has been elevated through the adoption of two white papers on education and human rights. The most recent commitment was published in the form of a strategy called ‘Equality for All- Norway's strategy for disability- inclusive development (2022-2025)’.
Despite these positive developments on the normative level, both at home and in partner countries, they remain to be translated into practice. These are findings from an evaluation exploring Norway's efforts to include persons with disability in development cooperation covering different perspectives.
The evaluation consists of:
1) Mapping of Norwegian Efforts to Include Persons with Disabilities in Development Assistance 2010-2019 (Report 1/2021)
2) Evaluation of Norway’s inclusion of persons with disabilities in development cooperation (Report 5/2022)
3) Evaluation of Norway’s inclusion of persons with disabilities in development cooperation: Disability inclusion and inclusive education: Lessons from Malawi and Nepal (Report 7/2022)
In addition to the three reports, we present an easy-to-read version and two policy briefs, so that you can easily get an overview of the main findings and policy recommendations.
