DCDD members

DCDD is a network of NGO’s, research and training institutes and individuals interested in and working on inclusion of people with disabilities in development cooperation. Members work closely together with organisations working for people with disabilities and Disabled People’s Organisations worldwide. ‘Nothing about us without us’ is an important leading principle in DCDD’s advocacy activities.
Members of DCDD joined forces to create a platform for learning on disability-inclusion, and to have a stronger voice towards policy makers.
