All impairments groups should be consulted meaningfully i.e. measures have to be taken so that everyone can understand the subject matter and being informed of the subject matter they can provide their inputs. Similarly, their inputs should be taken into consideration and let them know how their inputs have been incorporated.

OPD engagement should be made mandatory for donors or Development partners. There should be a strong monitoring mechanism to follow how the OPDs are engaged, most of time we see OPDs are engaged just to check box- which has actually no impact.

Finally, financial empowerment of OPDs is a must. OPDs must be provided staff resource support.
