A monitoring report of the social protection response to the COVID-19 pandemic for persons with disabilities in India.

CIP provided technical assistance to IDA and OPDs to document governments’ social protection response for persons with disabilities in South Asia, and formulate recommendations for an inclusive recovery.

Official development assistance has a critical role to play in financing social innovation, system building and budget support in low- and middle income-countries. It is, therefore, crucial to ensure that OPDs and other stakeholders monitor to what extent ODA supports inclusion of persons with disabilities. With the adoption of the OECD DAC disability marker, this has become feasible. Polly Meeks developed a guide for OPDs on how to use OECD database to get data they need for advocacy

CIP fellow, Meenakshi Balasubramanian, supported the drafting in consultation with many OPDs of a report on the Indian government’s initial Social Protection response for persons with disabilities called “Too little, too few” which was subsequently used for advocacy in different states. 

CIP together with several OPDs of Asia-Pacific and IDA launched the first manual to support strong budget advocacy by OPDs which is required now more than ever. Developed before the crisis, it presents their experience in budget advocacy, and some key lessons learned.

In recent years, interest has been growing on the role of public budget in supporting the inclusion of persons with disabilities. The terms inclusive budgeting, disability budgeting, disability responsive budgeting, have been used interchangeably. But do they mean the same?

CIP published the first note seeking to clarify the possible meaning of CRPD compliant budgeting

The twelve years since the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
have seen important progress in many national legal frameworks – but few of these changes can be fully implemented without more and better public budget resources for inclusion. Budgeting is a highly political process: as a minority often marginalised from power, persons with disabilities tend to lose out. This report presents evidence from a survey of 38 civil society organisations in 23 countries, complemented by more detailed findings from disability budget
analyses in India, the Philippines and the Pacific

CIP supported Europe Foundation and OPDs to conduct an analysis of the public budget from a CRPD perspective in Georgia and to formulate recommendations for the government and the disability movement.

This paper has been produced by the Center for Inclusive Policy for UNICEF and the ILO in the framework of the Inclusive Social Protection project funded by the UN Partnership on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
