Governments in developing countries most often rely on funding from donor and technical assistance from development partners to fulfill their constitutional mandate in making societies inclusive for persons with disabilities. For this reason, supporting the governments in prioritizing local needs and effectively coordinating and facilitating financial and technical resources to address these needs is fundalmental. I have noticed several cases where the government focal points were lost among different directions and technical guidance from donor and development partners. The improvement in coordination will allow better use of resources and needs driven rather than donor driven and fragmented invesments.
