Women with Disabilities: A briefing paper on ODA at the crossroads of disability and gender 10/20/23

Let's break silos now! Achieving disability-inclusive education in a post-COVID world 11/01/22

A world where inclusive education can flourish is also a world that can nurture inclusive societies. Working towards this vision is critical for reducing the vast levels of inequality and discrimination currently faced by millions of persons across the globe. This is especially so for the millions of children with disabilities, many of whom struggle to receive even the most basic of educations. Global progress in building inclusive education systems is now threatened by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has severely disrupted the educations of most children, and has seen funds diverted away from the education sector. Despite this setback, governments and the global community are now in a unique position to learn from the pandemic and to renew efforts to improve education.
