No development without inclusive development!
The Norwegian Development Aid needs to be inclusive of persons with disabilities. Why? First, because it is an obvious, wise and fair thing to do; second, you will not get rid of poverty without targeting persons with disability; third: Norway has signed and ratified the UN Convention on the rights of persons with disabilities. Now it is time to follow up.
Since the end of 2013, The Atlas Alliance has developed a partnership with the Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs and NORAD to contribute to reshaping the Norwegian development aid and make it more inclusive of persons with disabilities.
This partnership is commonly referred to as the “Inclusion project” or by its motto “Nobody left behind”.
The Atlas Alliance offers training programs, know-how and consultancy on the issue. We suggest you have a look at the pages and perhaps pay a visit to the Inclusion network. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions.
