Mapping of the Norwegian support to promote the rights of persons with disabilities

30 May 2018 Download
This study has mapped to what extent Norwegian development and humanitarian aid actors have managed to ensure that persons with disabilities are considered in supported projects and programmes, either as a main focus (targeted) or as an inclusive part of larger programs (mainstreamed). The report finds that the number of “targeted” disability projects/ has remained almost the same since 2010. A direct consequence is that the share of Norwegian aid to persons with disabilities has decreased in this period. A positive trend, however, is that disability is increasingly included in other aid projects in areas such as health, education and business development.
