DCDD strives for a world in which people with disabilities enjoy equal rights and opportunities to participate in society, with a focus on improving the lives of people with disabilities in developing countries. DCDD aims to influence the Dutch development sector. We’re mainly focused on advocacy at the Dutch Parliament, the Ministry, NGOs and the private sector. DCDD works within networks and coalitions on putting disability inclusion related topics and themes higher on the political agenda. We’re looking for strong allies to reach our goal: full and effective participation of people with disabilities in every society.
DCDD is the Dutch platform for lobby, linking and learning towards disability inclusion in international cooperation
We focus our advocacy work on the Dutch parliament and ministries, NGOs and the private sector with a strong focus on influencing the Dutch development cooperation policy by making it more disability inclusive.
We connect NGOs, knowledge institutes, individual experts and students that are working on or interested in disability inclusion in international cooperation. We bring together our members through workshops, knowledge sessions, network meetings, thematic focus groups and online discussions groups.
