Why is disability inclusive development important?

When people with disabilities are excluded, it is harder to escape the cycle of poverty and marginalization. This is why disability inclusive development plays an important role in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the World Bank’s goals of ending extreme poverty and promoting shared prosperity.



What do we mean by disability inclusion?

We believe that everyone should be treated equally, so that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as able-bodied people.

We advocate for reduced inequalities… for everyone!
