What we do

DCDD promotes disability inclusion in international cooperation: through lobby, linking and learning. We aim to show everyone in the Dutch development and humanitarian aid sector that inclusion works! Certainly if we learn and work together.

Contact us if you’re interested to become a participant or a partner. Watch the video below to learn more about our network.

We promote inclusive aid and trade policies, so that the rights of people with disabilities for equal access, participation and empowerment are embedded in a systematic way.
We bring together available expertise within The Netherlands and facilitate connections between our participants, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Aid and Trade), development organizations, humanitarian aid agencies, knowledge institutions, the private sector, and international networks of disability organizations.
Our participants have very diverse experiences and tools, regarding various types of disabilities, various contexts, etc. We maximize learning by facilitating exchange in thematic working groups, sharing tools and resources, developing new publications, and organizing events.
