Disability and Development “Learning from Country Experiences” Series

story from Tokyo Development Learning Center Since 2014








The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) has been ratified or acceded by more than 150 countries. The United Nations High Level Meeting on Disability and Development held in 2013 highlighted the need for urgent action by all relevant stakeholders towards implementation of the CRPD and disability-inclusive national policies and programs.

For effective and efficient implementation of disability-inclusive development and realization of true impact on the ground, knowledge sharing on the successes and failures as well as communication and collaboration among countries are critical.

This series features policy makers and key actors in the field of disability from various countries who will share their perspectives, best practices, and lessons learned in their respective countries. The series aims to contribute to sharing and exchange of real experiences and practical, action-oriented knowledge among key stakeholders in the area of disability and development.
