About the product

The framework of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) will expire in 2015. In the post-MDG era, persons with disabilities and disability issues must be an integral part of the international development agenda as the global community considers what will replace the MDGs beyond 2015. This publication is a collaborative effort by United Nations agencies, disability-related organizations and NGOs, as well as advocates and experts from around the world. It provides a roadmap for why and how disability can and should be included in the planning, monitoring and evaluation of development-related programmes and policies. It assesses the links between disability and poverty and explores ways to integrate disability issues into current and future development efforts. This book will benefit those working in disability advocacy, programming and outreach efforts.
