It features the policies of institutional international cooperation stakeholders on disability, the United Nations and World Bank initiatives on disability, and resources on disability inclusion in emergency contexts.
Leprosy and disability

This keylist features resources that highlight all four levels of social empowerment through social work, personalised social support and general inclusion principles.
Education in emergencies
In an emergency, it is essential that education services are accessible and inclusive, especially in relation to the most vulnerable and excluded groups such as people with disabilities. This keylist features resources that support inclusive education in emergency settings.
Two keylists have also recently been updated:
The aim of this keylist is to raise awareness on deafblindness and to provide access to resources to support development practitioners, service providers and parents/carers. This keylist was produced in partnership with Sense International.
