About the product

The Asian and Pacific Decade of Disabled Persons started with the premise of promoting a paradigm shift from a welfare-based to a rights-based approach towards disability. The current publication aims to provide disability-related data and policy-related information so that readers are able to see in detail how a particular country or area defines disability and collects related statistics, and implements the Biwako Millennium Framework for Action towards an Inclusive, Barrier-free and Rights-based Society for Persons with Disabilities in Asia and the Pacific, in particular, with regard to the establishment of a relevant institutional framework and policies.
