Dutch Coalition on Disability and Development - Vision and Mission
We envision a world in which people with disabilities can enjoy equal rights and opportunities. We believe that everybody gains, when development initiatives become inclusive of people with disabilities. Our work is guided by the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD) and the ‘leave no one behind’ principle of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
To achieve equal opportunities for people with disabilities, we focus on disability inclusion within international aid and trade initiatives. We aim to spread the word among Dutch stakeholders: not only about why inclusion is important and benefits us all, but also about how it works. We know that inclusion works! Together we can make it happen.
