The Atlas Alliance is proud to present our 2016 Progress report. 2016 also marks the first year for implementing the ambitious 2030 Agenda for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – a
framework that recognises meaningful participation and inclusion of persons with disability in all areas of
development and economic growth.
This is a report from a National, representative household survey carried out in Botswana in 2012 – 2014. The study was carried out on behalf of the Norwegian Federation of Organisations of Disabled Persons (FFO), Southern Africa Federation of the Disabled (SASFOD) and Botswana Federation of Disabled People (BOFOD).
This study on living conditions among persons with disability in Nepal was carried out in
2014 - 2015. It follows similar studies in seven countries in the southern Africa Region
and is thus part of a large database that can be utilized for international comparison.
– Problemet er globalt og bunner først og fremst i uvitenhet og manglende forståelse, mener Stine Hellum Bråthen fra SINTEF. Hun har sammen med forskere fra England og Sør-Afrika deltatt i prosjektet Disability and Sexuality i Sør-Afrika.
