• Description: The UNPRPD project Strengthening Respect for the Human Rights of Persons with Disabilities through Legislation, Services and Empowerment was established in 2013 to advance the CRPD compliance of laws, policies and practices in various areas of service delivery. A key component of the initiative was the implementation of sector-specific legislative reviews aimed at identifying gaps and opportunities in relation to disability rights. In addition, two pilot initiatives — on inclusive education and support to entrepreneurship — were built into the project to illustrate the benefits of adopting a disability rights perspective in the design of service delivery models.
