There are two ways in which INGOs and Development Partners (DPs) can advocate for disability inclusion for it to be owned by governments in developing countries:

1. Develop collaborative partnerships with different government departments to develop their vision on disability inclusion. One approach that works is by being based within the different ministries so the partnership is seen to be meeting their needs although there needs to be some influencing from INGOs as well.

2. Any national debates, dialogues and discussions should be led by the government with all the administrative support provided by INGOs and DPs. So they take ownership of the outcomes of the dialogue and how to progress with it.
