The project intends to support the identified priorities for the disability inclusive development in Nepal with the following approach.
Strengthening the policy/planning environment and coordination mechanisms with full and meaningful participation of OPDs, with particular focus on the most marginalized group to advance CRPD implementation;
Strengthening disability assessment and referral and disability support services; and
Building the capacity of policymakers, service providers, OPDs and other relevant stakeholders to support the formulation of disability inclusive planning, implementation, and monitoring of SDGs.
These interventions will build on the progress made from the ongoing programmes on disability, the Aawaaz project and will use the resources to leverage and scale up successful models in two provinces of Nepal namely Sudurpaschim and Karnali province.
