The Programme

The Joint Program developed two new tools of public policies to facilitate the full involvement of municipalities:

A gender-sensitive management model for local governments to promote and enable access to employment for persons with disabilities (Tool Box); and,
A Results-Oriented Budgetary Program (ROBP) to promote gender-sensitive employment for persons with disabilities.

By counting with these tools, local governments will have both, new programmatic and a financial tool to comply with current legislation, while setting the basis for scaling-up.
