                               P ART A. CONCEPT NOTE
1. Relevance of the Action
Globally, 650 million people, 10% of the population, lack the opportunities of the mainstream
population simply because they live with a disability and are subject to prejudice and
exclusion. In order to break the recurring cycle of poverty-disability-poverty cycle, the UN
Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities was passed in May 2008 as the result
of global campaigning for the rights and opportunities of persons with disabilities. Article 32
of the Convention states inter alia, that international cooperation, including international
development programmes, should be inclusive of, and accessible to, persons with
disabilities.
With the entry into force of the UN Convention, its signature by the European Union and its
gradual ratification by different EU Member States, state and non-state actors involved in
development cooperation in the South have a greatly increased need for specialist
information about the implementation and monitoring of Article 32.
The International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC) is a hub for the provision of
expertise on mainstreaming disability in development to national and international state and
non-state actors and thus uniquely positioned to respond to this opportunity. The project will
enable IDDC to increase its promotion of consistent understanding and implementation of the
UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) with a range of target
groups across member states by strengthening the capacity of the IDDC network.
Identify clearly the specific problems to be addressed by the action
Disability and poverty go hand in hand; it is estimated that every fourth family living in poverty
has a disabled family member and yet disability does not feature appropriately on the
development agenda, nor is it explicitly mentioned in the Millennium Development Goals.
The recent entry into force and growing ratification of UNCRPD presents an ideal opportunity
to address this situation but is also providing a new challenge for European Development
Agencies working in the global South. The European Community and all EU member states
are either signatories of or parties to this Convention and thus they now have to implement
Article 32 but they generally lack the necessary experience and specialist resources.
This situation is placing increasing demands on individual IDDC members in EU Member
States and thus on IDDC in its role of coordinating activities, promoting the sharing of best
practice and overseeing the dissemination of information. IDDC is therefore seeking to
expand its role as a central yet transnational resource for disability and development
expertise for mainstream development actors and to build its capacity.
Include a brief description of the stakeholders/target group(s).
The applicant and partners, the primary stakeholders, all have very significant experience
in programme and/or policy work in disability and development, each with their own focus.
Between them, they have offices in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy,
Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Sweden and UK; they all support programmes in the South
and, collectively, do so across the developing world. They are in relationship with the
European Union Institutions and each has an independent relationship with their member
state government.
The primary stakeholders are all members of IDDC, a transnational membership organisation
formed in 1994 and registered as an NGO in 2007, whose aim is to promote inclusive
development internationally. IDDC is already recognised as a valuable source of expertise
and has participated in UNDP and WHO processes related to the development and
implementation of UNCRPD. IDDC members include: representative organisations of
persons with disabilities, nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) focussing on disability and
development, and mainstream development NGOs. IDDC’s activities are implemented by 7

The other key stakeholders are the target groups of the action which cover the four key
types of European actors involved in development cooperation in the South and thus each
benefiting persons with disabilities in developing countries:
 European Institutions: including Europe Aid, DG External Relations, DG Employment
    European Parliament, Council of the European Union and other Directorates;
 National Member States’ Governments, more specifically their International Development
    Agencies/Directorates;
 Local Authorities in Member States engaged in development cooperation in the South;
 Mainstream development NGOs and European platforms on particular development
    issues.
Other stakeholders include national organisations of disabled persons (DPOs) and regional
networks of DPOs such as the European Disability Forum (EDF).
Demonstrate the relevance of the proposal to the needs and potentials of the stakeholders
 involved as well as in relation to the problematic to be addressed by the action
IDDC members have different and complementary strengths, experiences and programmes.
The project will increase their collective voice and encourage dialogue with each of the target
groups thereby promoting consistent understanding of commitments made in the UN
Convention and how these can be realised within and across Member States. It will also
increase the ability of the project partners to share and expand their knowledge and
experiences of disability and development issues, to align their programmes with the
UNCRPD, to increase collaboration and ultimately their development impact.
Demonstrate the relevance of the proposal to the objectives and the priorities
This project will contribute to the overall objective of improving the mainstreaming of disability
in the international development activities conducted by European state and non-state actors
in line with the UNCRPD. The project will stimulate and consolidate dialogue between North-
North stakeholder organisations on the effective implementation of UNCRPD Article 32 by:
 Providing EU Member State Development Agencies, Local Authorities and mainstream
     development organisations and platforms with consistent advice and approaches thereby
     promoting synergy within each of these target groups and interface between them;
 Positioning IDDC as a major resource hub for EU institutions on issues of mainstreaming
     disability in development cooperation;
 Building dialogue between IDDC and National Governments, Parliaments, Local
     Authorities and main-stream NGOs seeking to mainstream disability in their policies and
     development work in the South;
 Reinforcing IDDC as an effective forum for members to share learning and best practice.
The project will enhance IDDC’s capacity as a transnational resource cooperating with State
and Non-State actors seeking to fulfil the requirements of Article 32 UNCRPD and ensure the
inclusion of the needs and rights of persons with disabilities in their development work.

2. Description of the action and its effectiveness
This project, Making Development Inclusive, is a sequel to the recent “Disability
Mainstreaming in European Development Cooperation”, funded by the EC and led by IDDC
member Light for the World. It builds on the learning of the previous project and makes use
of the tools and resource database resulting from the previous project.
Overall objective: To improve mainstreaming of disability in international development
activities conducted by European state and non-state actors in line with the UN Convention
on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD).
Specific objective: To strengthen the International Disability and Development Consortium
(IDDC) as an expert civil society resource on disability and international development issues
for the European Commission, European Member States and Non State Actors in Europe
thereby promoting consistent implementation of UNCRPD in member states development
cooperation.
                                                                                                8
EuropeAid/127766/C/ACT/Multi – Annex A – Application form
                                                                  Making Development Inclusive

Outputs and Expected Results:
Output 1) IDDC has enhanced capacity as an expert source of specialist advice for EU
institutions on mainstreaming disability in their development cooperation policy and
practice. The result will be significantly increased levels of engagement with UNCRPD
Article 32 by EU institution actors and moves to adopt inclusive approaches in their
development cooperation. EU actors working in international development will use IDDC as a
specialist source of information, tools and advice.
Output 2) IDDC has increased networking with and provision of expertise on making
development inclusive to national governments and/or Parliaments, to Local
Authorities in Europe involved in development cooperation in the South and to
mainstream international development organisations. The target groups across different
member states will all be using consistent information and guidance from project partners;
there will be increased synergy amongst these actors, both working together within member
states, and in their development cooperation in the South.
Output 3) IDDC has produced and disseminated to target groups a variety of
publications and materials required for making development inclusive, each in a range
of accessible formats. The publications and materials will meet key information gaps of the
target groups and will educate adn result in wider debate on disability and development
issues both amongst IDDC members and with the broader range of international
development target groups.
Output 4) IDDC has improved coverage and representation through expansion of
membership to include partners from more recent member states and through
increased dialogue with representatives of people with disabilities from the South.
Through being more representative, IDDC, its member organisations and also their Southern
partners will have stronger voices and profiles in their external relationships with mainstream
development actors in Europe.
Output 5) IDDC has strengthened internal functioning and has built capacity of IDDC
Task Groups and also of recently-created secretariat to support the enhanced
network. The result of better accessing each other’s expertise and learning, of adopting
more shared approaches to disability and development, of raising their profile and
communications and coordinating their activities in Europe, will be improved services and
campaigning of IDDC members for the benefit of persons with disabilities in the South.

The combined result of all five outputs will be: a significant increase in commitment to and
implementation of inclusive approaches to development cooperation in the South. This will
improve State and non-state actors progress with achieving the MDGs and their impact on
the lives of poor persons with disabilities.

A Description of the proposed activities and their effectiveness
The activities include a range of collaborative projects which will be undertaken by groups of
project partners and project partners working individually in their member states.
 workshops and seminars: to raise awareness of UNCRPD, Article 32 and their
    implications with all four target groups
 publications and training materials providing guidance for development actors on
    inclusive approaches to development
 provision of input to mainstream development policy consultations and publications to
    raise awareness of UNCRPD and the need for inclusive approaches to development
 participation in events on mainstream development, eg EU Development Days to raise
    awareness of disability as a cross-cutting issue and of the need for inclusive approaches
 sharing learning and documenting best practice for external dissemination
 enhancing the IDDC database of specialist information resources.
 exchange visits with new member state development actors and Southern Partners
 capacity-building and training for IDDC Task Group and secretariat staff
                                                                                              9

                                                                     Making Development Inclusive

The activities will take place either in Brussels or in the member states of the project partners
and at different intervention levels: Europe-wide with the EU Institutions, nationally with
National Government’s Development Agencies and locally with Local Authorities working in
development. Interface with mainstream development organisations and platforms will take
place at each of these levels. The activities will encourage dialogue amongst actors in each
of the target groups and will also promote contact and exchanges between all four of them.
Involvement of the partners, their role and relationship to the applicant
All the partners have worked together via IDDC or through other project consortia and all are
committed to the implementation of UNCRPD. During the project design process, the
partners’ roles have been determined according to their different strengths and interests;
each will be involved in 3-5 activities and all will be involved in working collaboratively and
harmonising their support and approaches in interface with mainstream partners. Most of the
partners are represented on the Board of IDDC which will coordinate the project with the
applicant; partners who are not Board Members will be able to attend project coordination
sessions. IDDC itself is also a partner in its own right since this status will facilitate building
the capacity of the secretariat and Task Groups and will promote the sustainability of the
project outputs.
Involvement of other possible stakeholders, their anticipated role and/or potential attitudes
towards the project
The target groups include EU Institutions, National Governments’ including their International
Development Agencies, National Parliaments, Local Authorities involved in Development
Activities in the South and mainstream development NGOs and platforms in Europe. The UN
Convention has been ratified by many of the participating countries. It is also fully supported
by the European Commission which has proposed to the Council that the European
Community accede to the Convention. It is therefore anticipated that these target groups will
be receptive to the aims of the project.

National organisations of disabled persons and regional networks are equally committed to
implementing UNCRPD in Member States; they will be included in project communications to
facilitate synergy with their actions. In particular, IDDC already has links with EDF which is
also promoting UNCRPD but not Article 32 and will coordinate with EDF on the project
activities where appropriate in order to ensure consistency for European actors.

3. Sustainability of the action
It is recognised that the target groups all have a number of competing priorities and that
global concerns such as climate change and the current economic crisis may dominate their
agendas resulting in other commitments such as fulfilling obligations under Article 32
UNCRPD being diminished. The project activities are all designed to keep the Convention
and the rights of persons with disabilities on the agenda and to promote the fulfilment of
commitments made by Member States. If there is no impetus at the time of the Convention’s
entry into force, it will be much more difficult to achieve later on.
It is recognised that some ongoing capacity-building will be required after the project to
maintain the effective collaboration of the IDDC Task Groups both with external stakeholders
and internally. The project design includes continuity planning to develop and implant
strategies for maintaining the benefits beyond the life of the project.
It is the intention of IDDC members that this project will represent a significant step in the
transition from an informal network to a registered NGO. IDDC and its members are
committed to maintaining the enhanced role developed by the project. After project
completion, IDDC will be a stronger network with an expanded membership, raised profile
and voice and improved scope and coverage of its services to the different stakeholder
groups. The benefits of this will be recognised by all stakeholders as they will all gain from
IDDC continuing to be an expert central resource for civil society and EU MS institutions alike
on disability in development.

1.5. Objectives (max 1 page)


Describe the overall objective(s) to which the action aims to contribute towards and the specific
objective that the action aims to achieve.


Overall objective: To improve mainstreaming of disability in international development
activities conducted by European state and non-state actors in line with the UN
Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD).

The ultimate aim is to ensure that international development programmes, which are aimed
at benefiting the lives of the poorest and most marginalised people in developing countries,
are accessible to persons with disabilities and are accessed by them. Currently, persons with
disabilities are often not reached or are even excluded from mainstream development
activities because there has been no consideration of disability issues in the design or
implementation of programme activities. The project will raise awareness of the need and the
obligation for this to happen under UNCRPD Article 32 with key groups of international
development actors in Europe. It will provide European state and Non State Actors active in
the field of international development cooperation with access to specialist knowledge and
experience needed for implementation of Article 32 UNCRPD and will stimulate dialogue,
synergy and cooperation between these groups.


Specific objective: To strengthen the International Disability and Development
Consortium (IDDC) as an expert civil society resource on disability and international
development issues for the European Commission, European Member States and Non
State Actors in Europe thereby promoting consistent implementation of UNCRPD in
Member States development cooperation.

Consistency in the understanding of European State and Non State Actors involved in
development cooperation in the South of the implications of UN Convention Article 32 for
their development cooperation will promote dialogue, coherent implementation and
collaboration amongst these actors working together both in Europe and in the South. IDDC,
as a network, and its individual members have already been involved in campaigning for the
UNCRPD and in the development of the WHO/ILO/UNESCO/UNICEF Guidelines on
Community Based Rehabilitation which will be a key international tool providing guidance on
how to implement UNCRPD. IDDC is therefore in a unique position to use this experience to
provide coherent expertise to a range of different target groups at European level and across
Member States; in order to meet the growing demand for input. IDDC is currently in the
process of transformation from an informal network to a registered NGO and wants to build
its capacity in order to meet the growing demand for its expertise.




                                                                                                  13
EuropeAid/127766/C/ACT/Multi – Annex A – Application form
                                                                        Making Development Inclusive



1.6. Relevance of the action (max 3 pages)
Please provide the following information: Provide a presentation and analysis of the needs and the
potentials of the stakeholders involved (applicant, partner(s), other actors).
Around the world 650 million people, 10% of the population, lack the opportunities of the
mainstream population because they live with a disability and are subject to prejudice and
exclusion. In order to break the poverty-disability-poverty cycle, the UN Convention on the
Rights of Persons with Disabilities was passed in May 2008 as the result of global
campaigning for the rights and opportunities of persons with disabilities. Article 32 of the
Convention states inter alia, that international cooperation, including international
development programmes, should be inclusive of, and accessible to, persons with
disabilities.
With the entry into force of the UN Convention and its gradual ratification by different EU
Member States, there is growing need, amongst key state and non state actors across
Europe who are involved in development cooperation in the South, for specific information
and expertise about the implementation and monitoring of Article 32.
The International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC) is a hub for the provision of
expertise on mainstreaming disability in development to national and international state and
non-state actors and thus uniquely positioned to respond to this opportunity. The project will
enable IDDC to increase its promotion of consistent understanding and implementation of the
UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) with an enlarged range
of target groups across Member States by strengthening the capacity of the IDDC network.
The applicant and partners are all members of IDDC (except IDDC itself which is also a
partner); they have very significant experience in programme and/or policy work in disability
and development, each with their own focus. They work in Member States and support
programmes internationally; between them they have offices in Austria, Belgium, France,
Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Sweden and UK.

Provide a detailed description of the stakeholders/target group(s) involved and give an estimate of the
number of participants taking part in the various activities foreseen by the action (eg. for seminars or
conferences organised in the framework of the action).
The primary stakeholders are all members of IDDC, a network of 20 member organisations
collectively supporting disability and development work in over 100 countries around the
world. The overall aim of IDDC is to promote inclusive development internationally, with a
special focus on promoting the full and effective enjoyment of human rights by persons with
disabilities living in economically poor communities in lower and middle income countries.
IDDC members include representative organisations of people with disabilities,
nongovernmental organisations focussing on disability and development, and mainstream
nongovernmental development organisations:
 Action on Disability in Development (UK)           Norwegian Association of Disabled (N)
 Associazione Italiana Amici de Raoul Follereau (I) PHOS Platform Disability and
 CBM (D)                                                  Development Cooperation (B)
 Disabled Peoples Organisations – Denmark (DK) Save the Children UK
 Dutch Coalition on Disability & Development (NL) Sightsavers International (UK)
 Finnish Disabled People’s International            Swedish Organisation of Disabled
    Development Association (FIN)                     Persons International Aid Association
 Handicap International (F)                         Survivor Corps (UK)
 Healthlink Worldwide (UK)                          Voluntary Service Overseas (UK)
 Leonard Cheshire Disability (UK)                   World Vision UK

IDDC is a transnational membership organisation formed in 1994 and registered as an NGO
in Belgium in 2007. It operates through its structures of:
                                                                                                     14
EuropeAid/127766/C/ACT/Multi – Annex A – Application form
                                                                    Making Development Inclusive

General Assembly (GA): Maximum attendance by members is strongly encouraged at this
annual event as this is the key forum for sharing experiences, for peer-to-peer learning and
training and for distilling best practice. It is also where constitutional decisions, annual
accounts and membership applications are approved.
The Board: The Board is elected by members at the GA every two years and is the main
decision-making body between the GAs; it reflects the diversity of IDDC members.
Secretariat: Following registration in 2007, a small office was established in Brussels; the
Administrator is employed by IDDC to support the Board, to encourage member participation
and collaboration in IDDC activities and to facilitate the day-to-day running of IDDC.
Task Groups: The 7 IDDC Task Groups are vital to the implementation of IDDC’s aims and
activities. They are composed of IDDC members who volunteer to work together on themes
prioritised by IDDC: inclusive education, community-based rehabilitation (CBR), HIV/AIDS &
Disability, European Union, United Nations, conflict and emergencies and livelihoods.
IDDC members who are not project partners have similar and complementary aims; they
support the project and will benefit through their participation in Task Group activities and the
overall strengthening of IDDC as a network.
The other key stakeholders are the target groups of the action which cover the four key
types of European actors involved in development cooperation in the South and thus each
benefiting persons with disabilities in developing countries:
 European Institutions: including Europe Aid, DG External Relations, DG Employment
    European Parliament, Council of the European Union and other Directorates;
 National Governments and Parliaments of Member States, including their International
    Development Agencies;
 Local Authorities in Member States that are engaged with international development
 Mainstream development NGOs and European platforms on particular issues

Other stakeholders include national organisations of disabled persons (DPOs) and regional
networks of DPOs such as the European Disability Forum (EDF) and other resource centres
such as Source (a databank on international development and disability). National DPOs
and regional networks are equally committed to implementing UNCRPD in Member States;
they will be included in project communications to facilitate synergy with their actions. IDDC
already has links with EDF which is also promoting UNCRPD but not Article 32 and will
coordinate with EDF on project activities in order to ensure consistency of messages for
European actors where appropriate.
The project involves IDDC project partners initiating a range of events and publications and
also contributing to external mainstream events and publications. For seminars organised by
individual project partners in their Member States, each will receive an allocation for
organising a larger event or mix of smaller events appropriate to their context; a total of c.
360 officials involved in development cooperation will be reached. The four events in
Brussels will involve 3-4 project partners and c. 120 EU and EU Member State (EU MS)
officials. The number of people reached through participation in mainstream events (eg EU
Development Days), networking meetings and through the resource data-base and
systematic dissemination of publications will be far higher than this.

Identify clearly the specific problems to be addressed by the action.
Disability and poverty go hand in hand; it is estimated that every fourth family living in poverty
has a disabled family member; likewise of c. 520 million persons with disabilities living in
developing countries, 82% live below the poverty line. The majority of children with
disabilities do not receive and education and they constitute a third of children out of school.
Nevertheless, disability does not feature appropriately on the development agenda and is not
explicitly mentioned in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Poverty need not be the
outcome of disability provided appropriate support and services are made available and
persons with disabilities are able to access mainstream development interventions. If MDG
targets are to be reached it is vital that inclusive approaches are adopted in development
cooperation programmes in the South, in accordance with Article 32 of UNCRPD.
                                                                                                15

This the first time the EU has signed a UN Convention as an international body. The
European Community and all EU Member States are thus either signatories of or parties to
this Convention and, as it is gradually ratified, are thus committed to implementing Article 32.
This is providing a new challenge for European Development Agencies working in the global
South: there is a general lack of knowledge and experience in this area and how to integrate
it as a cross-cutting issue and therefore a corresponding need for more specialist resources.
This situation is placing increasing demands on individual IDDC members and thus on IDDC
in its role of coordinating activities, promoting the sharing of best practice and overseeing the
dissemination of information.
Demonstrate the relevance of the proposal to the needs and potentials of the stakeholders
involved as well as in relation to the problematic to be addressed by the action
The entry into force of UNCRPD presents an unparalleled opportunity for IDDC to raise
awareness of Article 32 and to promote the mainstreaming of disability in development
cooperation. The four target groups identified are all key actors involved in development
cooperation in the South but there are varying degrees of collaboration between them.
IDDC is already recognised as a valuable transnational source of expertise; this is evidenced
by invitations from WHO and UNDP to participate in processes related to the development of
UNCRPD. The project will enable IDDC to make the best use of the momentum provided by
UNCRPD ratification and of the associated advocacy opportunities for developing dialogue
with each of the target groups. It will increase IDDC members collective voice and capacity to
respond to the increasing demand for specialist knowledge and resources.
IDDC is actively seeking to develop contacts and new members in the Baltics, Balkans,
Southern Europe and Central and Eastern Europe. It has a working relationship with eRKo, a
children and development NGO in Slovakia, which worked in association with IDDC in a
previous EC funded project ‘Disability Mainstreaming in Development Cooperation’.
Through IDDC, and individually, the project partners already have a range of relationships
with several European Union institutions in Brussels, notably DG Employment. Likewise
there are varying levels of involvement with European networks and theme-based platforms
such European micro-finance platform. Each partner has an independent relationship with
their government and with a range of other international development actors.
IDDC is committed to completing its transformation from an informal network to a registered
NGO and to expanding its role as a central yet transnational resource for disability and
development expertise for third party stakeholders. For IDDC project partners, the project
will increase their joint learning and mutual support, it will reinforce the alignment of their
programmes with UNCRPD and it will ultimately improve their development impact in the
lives of persons with disabilities in the South.
Demonstrate the relevance of the action to the objectives and priorities presented in the Call
Guidelines.
This project will contribute to the overall objective of improving the mainstreaming of disability
in the international development activities conducted by European state and non-state actors
in line with the UNCRPD. The project will stimulate and consolidate dialogue between North-
North stakeholder organisations on the effective implementation of UNCRPD Article 32 by:
 Providing EU Member State Development Agencies, Local Authorities and mainstream
     development organisations and platforms with consistent advice and approaches thereby
     promoting synergy within each of these target groups and interface between them;
 Positioning IDDC as a major resource hub for EU institutions on issues of mainstreaming
     disability in development cooperation;
 Building dialogue between IDDC and National Governments, Parliaments, Local
     Authorities and main-stream NGOs seeking to mainstream disability in their policies and
     development work in the South;
 Reinforcing IDDC as an effective forum for members to share learning and best practice.
The project will enhance IDDC’s capacity as a transnational resource cooperating with State
                                                                                                16

and Non-State actors seeking to fulfil the requirements of Article 32 UNCRPD and ensure the
inclusion of the needs and rights of persons with disabilities in their development work.

1.7. Description of the action and its effectiveness (max 14 pages)

Provide a description of the proposed action including, where relevant, background information that
led to the formulation of the action. This should include:

   Outputs and expected results (max 4 pages). Indicate how the action will lead to a better and
    closer coordination and cooperation and an improved partnership amongst the various actors
    involved. Be specific and quantify outputs as much as possible. Indicate notably foreseen
    publications. Describe the possibilities for replication and extension of the action outcomes
    (multiplier effects)
   The proposed activities and their effectiveness (max 9 pages). Identify and describe in detail each
    activity to be undertaken to produce the results, justifying the choice of the activities and
    specifying, where applicable, the role of each partner (or associate or subcontractor) in the
    activities. In this respect, the detailed description of activities must not repeat the action plan.

Indicate clearly the sequence of and links between all different activities in an appropriate Project
Management Form, identifying the critical path for implementing the action

Outputs and expected results:
Output 1) IDDC has enhanced capacity as an expert source of specialist advice for EU
institutions on mainstreaming disability in their development cooperation policy and
practice.
There will be a significant increase in levels of awareness of UNCRPD among EU institution
actors and of the need to adopt inclusive approaches to development. Policy makers and
planners in working in a range of EU institutions on development cooperation will have
access, through IDDC serving as a central transnational hub, to the tools, information and
expertise needed for implementing UNCRPD and Article 32 in their development
interventions. IDDC’s existing relationships with EU institutions – European Commission
DGs External Relations, EuropeAid, Humanitarian Aid and Employment, the EU Parliament
and the EU Council will be strengthened and on a political level given priority following the
EU parliamentary elections and the appointment of the new Commissioners in 2009. The
voice of partners in the South will be strengthened in EU development dialogue and joint
actions and communications with the IDDC EU Task Group. IDDC’s EU Task group aims to
get systematic recognition of disability in the main EC development initiatives and the
implementation of Article 32 of the UN Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
in the development cooperation actions of the EU and EU Member States. It is committed to
following up and responding to opportunities to work with EU actors and for peer-to-peer
collaboration with other IDDC members.
Specific outputs will include:
 Links established with EU institutions not currently in relationship with IDDC
 Awareness raising meetings held to promote understanding and implementation of the
     UNCRPD with EU actors (c.20) and with EU member state officials (c.20) in Brussels
 Tailored training materials produced on UNCRPD and mainstreaming disability in
     development for integration into EU staff training and induction processes.
 IDDC stand at EU Development Days with materials aligned to the chosen theme
 Review of EU uptake of UNCRPD Article 32 in inclusion of persons with disabilities in
     selected development cooperation instruments and processes

Output 2) IDDC has increased networking with and provision of expertise on making
development inclusive to national governments and/or Parliaments, to Local
Authorities in Europe involved in development cooperation in the South and to
                                                                                                     17

                                                                   Making Development Inclusive

mainstream international development organisations.
Across Member State countries where IDDC project partners are based, there will be
increased access to coherent tools, information and expertise on UNCRPD and how to
mainstream disability in their development programmes in the South. All the different target
groups in Member States will have raised awareness of UNCRPD and Article 32 and of
IDDC as a source of expertise. The target groups across different Member States will all be
receiving consistent information and guidance from IDDC members coordinating their actions
and sharing best practice; this will facilitate synergy amongst these actors, both working
together within Member States and in their development cooperation programmes in the
South.

The interaction of IDDC’s 7 thematic Task Groups with mainstream international
development agencies will strengthen the mainstreaming of disability in specific areas of
development cooperation such as livelihoods, HIV/AIDs, conflict and emergencies, education
etc. Through sharing experiences and best practice with other civil society organisations,
IDDC will be able to work with these organisations to promote the integration of disability with
the other key cross-cutting issues: gender and environmental sustainability. With their broad
range of programmes, their geographical reach and their own independent relationships with
other target groups, the sensitisation of mainstream international development agencies will
have a powerful multiplier effect. In addition to adopting more inclusive approaches
themselves, they will be more responsive to requests and initiatives for this from multilateral
donors and from their local partners in the South.

Specific outputs will include:
 Development of harmonised methodologies and materials for IDDC members, based on
   tools developed during the EC-funded project ‘Disability Mainstreaming in European
   Development Cooperation’
 Awareness raising seminars and workshops in member state countries, where possible
   these will bring together participants from two or more of the project target groups.
   Approx. 18 events with c. 20 participants, taking place in six or more Member States.
 Promotion of North-North (EU-wide) and North-South relationships between national
   governments, parliaments, Local Authorities, mainstream NGOs and DPOs engaged in
   international development cooperation.
 Mainstream international development events and consultation processes in EU Member
   States will have raised awareness of UNCRPD Article 32, of the importance of
   mainstreaming disability in their development cooperation and of the availability of
   resources to assist them. IDDC representative attendance of 2 events per year will be
   the mechanism for this

Output 3) IDDC has produced and disseminated to target groups a variety of
publications and materials required for making development inclusive, each in a range
of accessible formats.

IDDC will establish key information gaps on mainstreaming disability in development –
through discussion with target groups of their needs and ascertaining how adequately these
can be met through existing resources in member countries eg Source and Enabling
Education Network (EENET). This will be done by the Task Groups who will then prioritise
those which IDDC is best placed to fill. By sharing, collating and analysing the experiences
and best practice of its members, IDDC will produce a variety of documents all aimed at
providing targeted and complementary inputs for awareness-raising, advocacy and practical
guidance on UNCRPD and the implementation of Article 32. IDDC will demonstrate its strong
commitment to accessibility by producing these in a range of alternative and accessible
formats including large print, HTML, Braille, MP3 and film clips. Dissemination strategies will
be established at the outset in order to ensure the optimum distribution; this will include
uploading onto the recently-improved and accessible IDDC website and establishing links
with other web-based resources, notably Source and EENET.
                                                                                              18

                                                                   Making Development Inclusive

Specific outputs include:
 Two policy papers or learning materials for informing collaboration with mainstream
   development organisations; current suggestions include
           o Accessible film clip illustrating good practice examples of inclusive
                development from developing countries
           o Identifying learning from gender mainstreaming processes that can inform
                disability mainstreaming and examples of how they can work together.
 Two sets of guidance notes for policymakers and implementers on themed areas; these
   are likely to include
           o Review of current take-up of UNCRPD Article 32 in selected EU development
                cooperation processes and provision of guidance on how this could be
                improved and/or Guidance on inclusive development for EU donor agencies in
                the provision of budget/sectoral support
           o Guidance targeted at specific target groups on the implications of UNCRPD
                and how they can use the WHO/ILO/UNESCO/UNICEF Community-Based
                Rehabilitation Guidelines (currently under development with IDDC
                involvement) as a resource.
    Production of the above in a range of alternative and accessible formats
    Improved IDDC website and resource data-base with expanded content and links to
        other web resources
    Production of key lists of resources on disability available from other sources

The publications and materials will educate and stimulate wider debate on disability and
development issues both amongst IDDC members and between the broader range of
international development target groups.

Output 4) IDDC has improved coverage and representation through expansion of
membership to include partners from more recent Member States and through
increased dialogue with representatives of people with disabilities from the South.

IDDC is looking to grow membership from the Baltics, the Balkans, Southern Europe and
Central and Eastern Europe, which are currently underrepresented in the network and to
increase the scope of its collaboration and coordination across Europe. IDDC has already
worked in partnership with eRKo, an international development agency based in Slovakia,
and will continue to build this relationship as well as making new contacts.

Experience from the previous EC-funded project ‘Disability Mainstreaming in European
Development Cooperation’ showed the benefits of enabling representatives of persons with
disabilities from the South to participate in policy consultation processes and international
development focussed-events in the North and to speak directly of their experiences. IDDC
is keen to further increase the voice of persons with disabilities in the South in international
development processes taking place in Europe, both in Brussels and in Member States.

The specific outputs will include:
    Identification of at least 4 potential new members from countries currently not
       represented and ideally new Member States;
    Visits by representatives of organisations based in the Baltics, Balkans, Southern
       Europe or Central and Eastern Europe and undertaking development cooperation
       activities in the South to events focussed on UNCRPD in IDDC member countries; 3
       people per year;
    Exploratory and mentoring visits by IDDC representatives to organisations in new
       Member States with development cooperation activities in the South; to explore
       opportunities for collaboration; 1 visit per year;
    Representation of Southern partners at target group events in Member States and in
       Brussels processes; approx 6 people per year.

                                                                                              19
EuropeAid/127766/C/ACT/Multi – Annex A – Application form
                                                                    Making Development Inclusive

Output 5) IDDC has strengthened internal functioning and has built capacity of IDDC
Task Groups and also of recently-created secretariat to support the enhanced
network.
IDDC’s activities are implemented primarily by the 7 Task Groups, each focussing on a
particular theme. Working together to achieve the first four outputs will not only strengthen
IDDC’s profile externally, but will also bring IDDC members together and promote efficient
and effective communication and collaboration.
Following its registration as an NGO in Brussels in 2007, IDDC established a small
secretariat in Brussels. The role of the secretariat in coordinating and supporting Task Group
Activities is still developing and will benefit from the activities and resources the project;
likewise the project will enable the systems and processes for ensuring effective functioning
that are currently being embedded to be optimised and established.
The raised external profile of IDDC and increased levels of collaboration amongst IDDC
project partners will lead to IDDC-related activities having higher priority and being more
integrated in the strategies and workplans of individual member organisations.
Through working with more experienced partners to implement the activities outlined below
and achieve the project outputs, IDDC will develop its own capacity and emerge as a
stronger resource on mainstreaming disability in development and as a stronger international
NGO.
Specific outputs will include:
    Development and implementation of strategy for external and internal IDDC
      communications; this will include a communications and visibility plan compliant with
      EU Guidelines. Improved communications will result in a stronger voice and profile
      for IDDC and its members in their external relationships.
    Training and capacity-building of TGs and secretariat                staff,   especially   in
      communications and accessible formats; 1 per year.
IDDC members will improve their services and campaigning activities for the benefit of
people with disabilities in the South through accessing each other’s expertise and learning,
adopting shared approaches to disability and development issues, improving the production
and dissemination of specialist resources, raising their profile and communications and
coordinating their activities in Europe.

Overall, the combined result of all five outputs will be: a significant increase in commitment to
and implementation of inclusive approaches to development cooperation in the South. This
will improve State and non-state actors progress with achieving the MDGs and their impact
on the lives of poor persons with disabilities.

PROPOSED ACTIVITIES AND THEIR EFFECTIVENESS
The activities below have been grouped to show their relationship to each of the 5 outputs;
however, some of the activities will contribute to the achievement of more than one output
and these are highlighted.
PROJECT INCEPTION
With the involvement of the applicant and 11 partner organisations, the aim of this phase is
to lay the foundations for successful collaboration and communication between project
partners. Recruiting the project staff team, further refining and coordinating plans, ensuring
detailed understanding of project tasks and establishing management, monitoring and
reporting mechanisms will be the key objectives of this phase.
ACTIVITY A1
A project inception meeting will be held during the first month to begin the process of
implementation planning, including the development of timeline, the promotion and visibility
of the project and elaboration of the roles and responsibilities of the Task Group and
individual partners. This meeting will involve Leonard Cheshire Disability (LCD), Board
members and representatives from all the partners who together will form a project working
group; the Board will be coordinating the project and report to the applicant.
Implemented by LCD working closely with IDDC Board. See project budget 6.1.1


ACTIVITY A2
The Project Coordinator will be recruited to support the project partners, to monitor progress
against objectives and to liaise with the Working Group to ensure smooth running. IDDC and
LCD, with active participation of IDDC Board, will recruit the Project Coordinator who will
employed IDDC Secretariat in Brussels and line-managed by a designated Board member.
An administrative assistant will be employed by the project to support to the Project
Coordinator. A part-time Communications Officer will be employed for the establishment and
maintaining of external and internal communications systems. Both will be recruited by LCD
working closely with IDDC and will be sited in the IDDC Brussels Secretariat.
Implemented by LCD and IDDC Board. See project budget 1.1.1, 1.1.2, 1.1.3 and 6.1.5

ACTIVITY A3
LCD and the IDDC Board will ensure the objectives of the project are met according to the
project design. They will work with the Project Coordinator to:
 Oversee the implementation process;
 Establish project monitoring processes – indicators, tracking and reporting systems;
 Review and provide content recommendations on all policy, guidance notes and learning
    publications, training and advocacy materials;
 Support project partners to implement country and theme specific interventions;
 Review monitoring reports, resolve problems and assess the effects of project activities;
 Ensure external visibility of project and its results and communication of EU support and
    also internal flow of project news with wider IDDC membership especially at annual GAs;
 Organise base-line indicators assessment, mid-term review and final evaluation;
 Fulfil narrative and financial reporting requirements to donor.
This will be done through additional day of meetings attached to routine Board Meetings.
Implemented by LCD and Board working with Project Coordinator. See project budget 6.1.3


ACTIVITY A4
An exercise to establish the baselines for the project indicators will be undertaken at the
outset of the project; these will serve as a reference point for assessing change at the mid-
                                                                                            21

term review and the end of project evaluation and contribute to any longer-term impact
assessment in the future. The exercise will cover the key indicators in the Logical
Framework but will not be confined to these: it will seek to ensure that a comprehensive
monitoring framework is established. The methodology will be agreed at the inception
meeting and will require either additional meeting time or some limited external input.
Implemented by LCD and Board working with Project Coordinator. See project budget 5.4.1

ACTIVITY A5
As this project is designed to contribute to the exchange of learning and sharing of
experiences and best practices among IDDC members, fully functioning communications
resources will be essential. The Board will meet with the Communications Officer to develop
a communications strategy covering both the external and internal communications of IDDC.
A key component of this will be the EU Communications & Visibility Plan ensuring that EU
involvement in the project is clearly communicated and compliant with EU requirements. The
Communications Officer, in collaboration with the IDDC Board, Task Groups and Secretariat,
will develop tools and systems, including the resource data-base, and provide updates at
IDDC’s General Assembly. An electronic IDDC newsletter will be produced with input from
the project partners and will share details of the project progress and regular news of
forthcoming events. In addition to general monitoring processes, dedicated meetings will be
held annually to review communications in general and the visibility of the project.
Implemented by IDDC Board working with Task Groups, Secretariat and Communications
Officer. See project budget 6.1.5


ACTIVITY A 6
In order to raise awareness of the project, its aims, objectives and the potential benefits for
the target groups, a launch event will be held in Brussels for c. 50 people. EU state and non-
state actors (c. 40) will be invited to attend and meet project partners and staff (c.10).
Publicity surrounding the launch will spread the news to a broader audience.
Implemented by CBM and Light for the World EU offices working closely with LCD and IDDC
Secretariat. See project budget 5.9.1

ACTIVITIES FOR OUTPUT 1): IDDC has enhanced capacity as an expert source of
specialist advice for EU institutions on mainstreaming disability in their development
cooperation policy and practice.
The activities for this output are targeted at raising the awareness amongst European
Institutions of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and specifically
Article 32. The intention is to advance take up of Article 32 in EC development cooperation
policies and practices and to provide the tools and expertise for this. The activities for this
output will be coordinated by the IDDC EU Task Group.

ACTIVITY B1
The EU Task Group will meet to plan the details of activities for this output, inviting other
Task Group leaders and IDDC members as appropriate.

Implemented by Light for the World (LFW) working with other project partners in EUTG
See project budget 6.2.1

ACTIVITY B2
An important initial step will be to map the existing links of different IDDC members and Task
Groups with EU institutions, both state and non-state actors. IDDC has already established
links with the European Commission, the European Parliament and the European Council
and plans to develop links with other relevant EU bodies such as the Committee of the
                                                                                             22

                                                                    Making Development Inclusive

Regions. The EU Task Group has existing links with EU-level NGO networks such as
CONCORD, European Disability Forum and the Human Rights and Democracy Network and
will work to establish and/or to deepen links with other networks and working groups such as
the ‘European Working Group on Social Protection and Decent Wrok in Development
Cooperation’, VOICE or the European Microfinance Platform. Other IDDC Task Groups will
contribute to the mapping exercise as some are already in contact with topic-focussed
platforms such as IDDC Livelihoods Task Group with the European Micro-finance Platform.
Following this initial step, a plan will be developed for making contact with the state actors
and institutions prioritised.
Implemented by LFW working with other project partners in EUTG. See project budget 6.2.1

ACTIVITY B3
The IDDC EU Task Group (EUTG) aims to ensure the take-up of disability issues in the EU’s
policy and MDG work. In particular it aims to ensure the MDG framework actively promotes
adherence to and implementation of UNCRPD through the Commission’s MDG contract
mechanism. The EUTG will monitor the EU’s general take up of UNCRPD Article 32, the
inclusion of persons with disability and inclusive approaches to development in a selected
sample of 2 or more EU instruments and processes chosen from: MDG work, country
strategies, DCI review, policies relating to development cooperation (to be selected after
consultation with EU actors). A summary report will be produced in Year 2 for advocacy
purposes; where relevant it will provide guidance on ways to improve inclusive approaches
(this is preparatory work for the publication in D4).
Implemented by LFW with EU Task Group project partners and other EUTG members. See
project budget 6.2.2

ACTIVITY B4
In order to further promote understanding of UNCRPD & Article 32 within current frameworks
such as the EU Africa partnership, IDDC will facilitate links between European Institutions
and civil society groups and governments in the South. This will involve the participation of
Southern partners in development cooperation workshops and conferences held in Europe.
This activity will involve coordination with all the IDDC Task Groups in order to facilitate
Southern partner input on particular themes such as livelihoods, HIV/AIDS, inclusive
education. This activity is closely linked with Activity D7 and E4; visits by Southern partners
will include multiple events wherever possible - a total of 6 per year across these 3 activities.
Implemented by project partners in close coordination with IDDC Secretariat, EUTG and
other TGs. See project budget 6.2.3 and 6.

ACTIVITY B5
The EUTG has identified the opportunity to develop training materials on disability and
inclusive approaches to development and, more specifically, UNCRPD and Article 32 for
integration into the training programmes of EU institutions. Taking core IDDC guidance
materials and tools developed previously and working with receptive EU institutions, EUTG
will develop targeted training material for inclusion in their core training; this will involve
limited external costs – trainer and publications. In addition, it will run a short seminar for EU
actors in Brussels; (this will be coordinated with Activity C3 event for EU Member State staff
based in Brussels). EUTG will further advocate for the inclusion of such training in EuropeAid
training programmes.
Implemented by EU TG Member Sightsavers. See project budget 6.2.4 and 5.7.2
ACTIVITY B6
The EU TG and individual IDDC members have already participated in EU Development
Days and recognise the potential that running a stand provides for reaching a wide variety of
EU actors as well as state and non-state actors from across the Member States. Through

this project IDDC will have a more formal and coordinated presence and will run an IDDC
stand with especially prepared information and resources aligned to the theme of the EU
Development Day. This will include a key list of resources commissioned from the Source
database managed by IDDC member Handicap International. Planning for this activity will
involve members from different Task Groups and require a coordination meeting, probably in
association with the IDDC General Assembly which takes place 3-4 months prior to EU
Development Days. It is anticipated that a minimum of 3-4 IDDC members will participate in
this activity which is closely associated with Activity C4 delivering IDDC advocacy events in
conjunction with EU Development Days. This activity will raise the profile of IDDC, of
individual IDDC members and of this project.
Implemented by IDDC member in EU Presidency country in close collaboration with EUTG,
IDDC Secretariat and project partners LFW, LCD, CBM, LFTW, HI and Sightsavers.
See project budget 6.2.5

Output 2) IDDC has increased networking with and provision of expertise on making
development inclusive to national governments and/or Parliaments, to Local
Authorities in Europe involved in development cooperation in the South and to
mainstream international development organisations.
Through activities of this project, IDDC seeks to further establish itself as an expert resource,
a hub for specialist information and source of training/facilitation for mainstreaming disability
in development across Member States. It has already been involved in one major EC funded
project, the “Disability Mainstreaming in European Development Cooperation and many of
the activities for this project build on and exploit the outputs from that project.

ACTIVITY C1
Drawing on the Practical Manual developed in the previous project “Make Development
Inclusive: How to include the perspectives of persons with disabilities in the project cycle
management Guidelines of the EC” and related tools available on the associated website, a
training course, trainers manual and participant materials will be developed for use by IDDC
project partners. This will be implemented by Light for the World working closely with the
IDDC Secretariat. Following this, a 2-day Training of Trainers harmonisation workshop will be
held with IDDC members for familiarisation with the training materials and for agreeing
consistent approaches to be used across the different target groups and Member States. The
workshop will identify further materials/formats/translations needed, coordinate activity plans,
develop visibility strategies and agree group mechanisms for feedback and the
documentation of best practice.

Implemented by Light for the World in close collaboration with CBM and IDDC Secretariat
See project budget 6.3.1 and 6.3.2

ACTIVITY C2
Following Activity C1, IDDC members will hold awareness raising and/or training events in
their own countries for development actors working in the South. Where possible these will
involve a cross-section of actors from the different target groups – national government,
Local Authorities, nongovernment organisations and also any EU staff who are based in the
member country, all having an involvement in development cooperation. Opportunities to
hold events focussed on specific target groups will also be taken. The formats of these
events will vary according to the different contexts; they will generally last one or two days
and partners will have an allocation enabling them to decide if one larger or two smaller
events is appropriate; events will be spread across six or more countries reaching c.30
people per country and a total of c. 360 people. Learning from these events will be collated
centrally by IDDC Secretariat and shared with other members involved in this activity.

Implemented in Belgium by PHOS, in the Netherlands by DCDD, in Italy by AIFO, in Ireland
by CBM Ireland, in Luxembourg by HI, in the UK by LCD and in Sweden by SHIA. See

project budget 6.3.3

ACTIVITY C3
In order to ensure that no key actors or links in the development chain are omitted, IDDC will
also include Member State representatives to the European Council who are based in
Brussels and involved in development cooperation (eg from GTZ, DFID) in their awareness-
raising activities through meetings and/or a short seminar. Training and/or awareness-raising
materials will be adapted from C1 for this purpose.

Implemented by EU Task Group project partners; this will include LFW, LCD and CBM. See
project budget 6.3.4 and 5.7.3

ACTIVITY C4
Each year, IDDC members will develop and hold an advocacy event in conjunction with the
EU Development Day and the stand run by IDDC. The advocacy event will focus on aspects
of UNCRPD and Article 32 and inclusive development which relate to the chosen theme of
the Development Day and will involve the participation of c.2 Southern partners.

The host countries are Belgium in 2010, Poland in 2011 and Cyprus in 2012; so this activity
will also contribute to the Output 4 increasing IDDCs coverage in countries where it is not
currently represented. IDDC will use EU Development Days as opportunities for more
generally increasing the visibility of the network and the project and making new contacts in
the host country with civil society organisations and state actors.

Implemented by IDDC project partner in Presidency country - in 2010 this will be PHOS in
Belgium – with support from EU TG, other TG(s) relevant to EUDD theme and project
partners HI, CBM, LFW, LCD and Sightsavers. See project budget 6.3.5

ACTIVITY C5
Increasing requests are being made to IDDC Task Group members by member state policy
makers, often for their input to policy documents and related consultation processes. Such
invitations are often received at short notice and may require coordinated input or physical
participation in an event with advance preparation of materials such as leaflets/flyers. IDDC
is keen to facilitate, coordinate and document this aspect of Task Group work and the project
will facilitate this process for 2 thematic events per year.

Implemented by Task Group project partners and coordinated by IDDC Secretariat. See
budget 6.3.6 and 5.1.3

ACTIVITY C6
Mainstream conferences and workshops on international development topics provide key
opportunities for IDDC TG project partners to participate and to raise awareness of disability
issues, UNCRPD and Article 32 and the resources that can be accessed via IDDC. The
project will enable IDDC members with limited resources to attend such events and to
develop relevant awareness raising materials and resources such as information key lists
and leaflets.

Implemented by IDDC Task Group Coordinators working with Project Coordinator.            See
budget 6.3.7 and 5.1.3


Output 3) IDDC has produced and disseminated to target groups a variety of
publications and materials required for making development inclusive, each in a range
of accessible formats.
In further developing its role as an expert civil society resource on disability and
development, IDDC is seeking to reinforce its role as a specialist information hub. This will
                                                                                            25

                                                                 Making Development Inclusive

involve a range of activities designed to complement and link through to other existing
resources in member countries as well as producing new materials which meet unmet needs
of target groups for mainstreaming disability in their development cooperation in the South.
Collaboration and sharing with other information resources will be increased, notably with
Source which is managed by project partner Handicap International and with EENET.
ACTIVITY D1
Between them, the project partners have a wealth of knowledge of existing resources and
are concerned to avoid any unnecessary duplication of effort. The first step will therefore be
for the different Task Groups to conduct a rapid scoping of external resources already
available to the target groups from other sources and to identify any key needs which are
currently unmet.
Implemented by project partners coordinating the Task Groups in coordination with IDDC
Secretariat. See project budget 6.4.1

ACTIVITY D2
Following the preparatory work of D1, a meeting of TG Coordinators, representatives of the
Board and the Communications officer will meet to prioritise and select the resources which
IDDC will focus on during the project in order to produce a coherent group of materials. In
consultation with existing resource centres in Member States, the group will also develop a
strategy for dissemination, review and updating of materials and for coordination and linking
with other resource data-bases.
Implemented by project partners, with support from Communications Officer and coordinated
by Secretariat. See project budget 6.4.2

ACTIVITY D3
As a result of the scoping and prioritisation work, two policy or learning documents and
materials will be developed which draw on the collective experiences and best practices of
IDDC members and their Southern partners. These documents will focus on improving
collaboration with mainstream development organisations and the achievement of MDGs and
are likely to have thematic focus such as inclusive education and gender. The materials will
be produced in a range of alternative formats and an accessible film clip showing examples
of good inclusive practices in development programmes in the South has been proposed.
Implemented by project partners in Task Groups. See project budget 6.4.3


ACTIVITY D4
The policy and learning documents in D3 will address a wide audience of different
mainstream state and non-state actors in development. However, for some key actors there
is a need for more specific guidance on how particular development processes can be made
more inclusive and for raising awareness of particular resources. Two different sets of
guidance notes will be developed on themes relating to IDDC TG focus areas; current
thinking indicates a) guidance on aligning country strategies or budget sector support with
UNCRPD and Article 32 and making them more inclusive and b) guidance on the use of the
WHO/ILO/UNESCO Guidelines on Community-Based Rehabilitation being developed for
supporting the implementation of UNCRPD. Guidance notes for state and non state actors
based in European Member States will promote their understanding of and synergy with
approaches being adopted in the South.
Implemented by Task Group project partners, including CBM, HI Lux
See project budget 6.4.4

ACTIVITY D5
IDDC members are all committed to the principle of inclusiveness and accessibility and the
Board is committed to disseminating the IDDC’s resources so that they reach the widest
                                                                                            26

possible audience. The project will provides the opportunity to demonstrate this to target
groups and to reinforce partners’ capacities in this area. The materials for D3 and D4 and
also those produced for the seminars and workshops in B6 and C1 and C2 will be produced
in two or more EU official languages and in a range of accessible formats. It is envisaged
that this will largely be done in electronic multi-formats of DAISY (Digital Access Information
System), MP3, large print, HTML and Braille versions provided on CDs.

IDDC’s updated website is accessible and maintaining this accessibility will be a key criteria
as it is further developed and IDDC’s database of resources and links is expanded and
uploaded during the project. A limited number of IT consultant days have been included to
ensure this is done efficiently and overcome any issues arising from links with other less
accessible sites. Handicap International UK manages the disability component of Source
and will manage its collaboration with this project.
Implemented by IDDC Secretariat, Handicap International and other partners. See project
budget 6.4.5 and 5.7.4

ACTIVITY D6
For all resources and information, the project will establish systems for regular review and
updating of internal and external listings and also for reviewing the needs for translated
versions and organising this were necessary.
Implemented by IDDC Secretariat/Communications Officer working with TG Coordinators.
See project budget 6.4.6 and 5.5.2

ACTIVITY D7 – This is a cross-cutting activity contributing to all outputs and project visibility
In the second half of the last year of the project, IDDC will organise an event in Brussels for
the target groups and IDDC members for publicising the results of the project, disseminating
the resources developed and sharing of learning between IDDC members and the target
groups. Approx. 75 participants are envisaged, including 2-3 representatives of southern
partners and 2-3 representatives from development actors in new Member States who have
participated in project activities. In addition to raising the visibility of the project and ensuring
participants are aware of EU funding and involvement, this event will also enable target
groups and IDDC members to participate in the development of post-project strategies and
continuity planning for IDDC.
Implemented by LCD, Board and IDDC Secretariat working closely with EU TG. See project
budget 6.4.6 and 5.9.2

Output 4) IDDC has improved coverage and representation through expansion of
membership to include partners from more recent Member States and through
increased dialogue with representatives of people with disabilities from the South.

ACTIVITY E1
IDDC is concerned to enhance its coverage and to include members from new Member
States. A working relationship has already been established with eRKo in Slovakia, but it is
hoped over the period of the project to establish contact with other nongovernment
organisations in the Balkans, the Baltic, Southern, Eastern and Central Europe who are
involved in development cooperation in the South. A systematic approach will be used for
identifying the range of possible organisations and making contact with them; information on
the work of IDDC and its members and the resources available will be shared with them. The
aim is to identify 4 potential new members and establish ongoing links with 2 others.

Implemented by IDDC Board and IDDC Secretariat. See project budget 6.5.1

ACTIVITY E2
Where there are positive responses from non-governmental organisations in new Member
                                                                                                  27

States, IDDC will invite them to participate in project activities relevant to their interests and
areas of work; these are likely to include both external events such as EU Development Days
or mainstream conferences and also IDDC internal learning seminars or Task Group
meetings. This contact will enable potential new members to get direct experience of IDDC’s
activities, to learn more about IDDC members and understand the opportunities which IDDC
membership would bring; IDDC would in turn learn from these organisations’ knowledge and
experiences. An average of 3 visitors per year across the three years of the project.

Implemented by IDDC Board members working closely with Task Groups and IDDC
Secretariat. See project budget 6.5.2

ACTIVITY E3
Following awareness-raising activities conducted in E1 and E2, it is anticipated that there will
be opportunities for IDDC representatives to attend events – conferences, workshops or
internal meetings – organised by potential new members. Participation in these events will
enable IDDC to raise awareness not only of UNCRPD and Article 32 but also to share
information about IDDC, its members, its resources and its relationships and ways of working
with target groups at European level and in member countries. Such exploratory visits will
increase IDDC’s awareness and knowledge of the resources, skills, experiences and working
contexts in new Member States.

Implemented by project partners on the Board and IDDC Secretariat coordinating with all
partners. See project budget 6.5.3

ACTIVITY E4
The proactive facilitation the interaction of Southern partners of IDDC members in policy and
planning processes (in existing frameworks such as EU Africa partnership) taking place at
Europe level and in Member States is identified as a separate activity since it cross-cuts
many other activities: B4, B6; C2, C3, C4, C5 and C6; D7 and F3. Some visits will be to
external events held by target groups and others will be to initiatives organised by IDDC in
the framework of this project. The visits will also reflect IDDC project partner priorities eg
ensuring the voices of young people are heard. An average of three events with one to two
Southern partners is envisaged for each year of the project.

Implemented by LCD and IDDC Board in close coordination with project partners and IDDC
secretariat. See project budget 6.5.4

Output 5) IDDC has strengthened internal functioning and has built capacity of IDDC
Task Groups and also of recently-created secretariat to support enhanced network.

ACTIVITY F 1
To sustain and take forward the progress achieved by the project, it will be important for the
IDDC Task Groups and Secretariat to develop the capacities necessary for this during the life
of the project. The first step will be to conduct a capacity assessment and, in light of this, to
develop a capacity-building plan. A consultant experienced in organisational development of
networks will be involved in this process.
Implemented by IDDC Board collaborating with Project Coordinator. See project budget 6.6.1

ACTIVITY F 2
The capacity-building plan is likely to include a range of institutional strengthening activities
including internal workshops and training courses. An area already identified for training is in
communications and producing documents in accessible formats. It is envisaged that TG
Coordinators and Secretariat personnel will access one training per year and receive a
limited number of days mentoring from the consultant (2-3 days per year).

                                                                                                28

Implemented by LCD with designated project partner on the Board. See project budget 6.6.2

ACTIVITY F3
Sharing experiences, peer learning and identifying best practice are core activities for IDDC
members. The key forum for this is the IDDC General Assembly attended by as many IDDC
members as possible and where, in addition to administrative and constitutional sessions, a
one-day seminar is held on specific theme. External facilitators or experts are usually sought
for the seminar day. The Task Groups all contribute their different perspectives and then
have the opportunity to integrate learning into their plans for the forthcoming year. This will
be a key event for the project partners to share the progress of the project and to discuss the
opportunities arising and implications for other IDDC members not participating in the project.
Implemented by IDDC Board, Task Group members and Secretariat. See project budget
6.6.3 and 5.7.7

ACTIVITY F4
Following the external review held with target groups, the Board, Task Groups and
secretariat will consider the conclusions and conduct a further internal learning review aimed
at taking forward learning and recommendations and putting in place a continuity plan for
ensuring a smooth transition at project end. The consultant advising on institutional
strengthening will be involved in this process.
Implemented by IDDC Board, Secretariat and TG Coordinators. See project budget 6.6.4

ACTIVITY G1
An mid-term review will be conducted by IDDC in year two of the project and will involve not
only the project partners but also other IDDC members; it will probably adding an extra day
to the annual General Assembly. A small sample of target group contacts will be consulted
beforehand but the process will be largely internal and participatory.
Implemented by LCD working closely with the Board. See project budget 5.4.2

ACTIVITY G2
An external evaluation will be conducted by a consultant comfortable with participatory
processes at the end of the project; the base-line indicator assessment exercise conducted
in Activity A 4 and the mid-term review G1 will be the points of reference for measuring
change.

Implemented by LCD working closely with the Board. See project budget 5.4.3

CRITICAL PATH
Many of the activities will take place in parallel, as shown in the timeline in 1.9. There are
separate but similar critical paths for delivering each of the outputs:
 In all cases, the scoping, preparation and planning meetings form the initial step
 Networking and visits and interface with external events will continue at an even pace
 The trainer of trainer harmonisation workshop and subsequent materials adjustment and
   translation for use across Member States is a critical first step prior to rolling out
   awareness raising and training activities
 Workshops with target groups are therefore planned for years 2 and 3
 Research and information gathering will mean that documents will be published in years
   2 and 3
 Translations and alternative formats will follow publication...
 ... and the sharing of results once this has happened.

                                                                                             29

COMMUNICATIONS ACTIVITIES
4. Main activities:
The project action is itself composed of many communications activities into which visibility of
EU role and acknowledgement of E funding will be integrated into these tools:
                                                                                                30
EuropeAid/127766/C/ACT/Multi – Annex A – Application form
                                                                       Making Development Inclusive

     Workshops and seminars: invitations, materials, publicity
     Publications: design, acknowledgements and publicity
     Website and information data-base: acknowledgements and design
     Conferences & EU Development Days: all display materials and presentations
These will be implemented by project partners as outlined in 1.7 and 1.9 in coordination with
the Communications Officer.

Two specific visibility events are planned to ensure project visibility with target groups in EU:
     Project launch event
     Project results dissemination event
Suitable press-releases and media coverage will be ensured via print and web media.

The visibility of the project, its resources and results will be further enhanced by ensuring
accessible communications: the use of alternative formats and 2-3 European languages.

5. Communications Tools used
   Workshops and seminars: enable in-depth dialogue and interaction with target groups
   and coordination with other initiatives
   Publications: ensure wider audience can refer to information over a longer period of time,
   reaches those unable to attend events; can be proactively disseminated to target groups
   Website and information data-base: photos and newsclips etc. - more flexible and easier
   to update, also reach wider audience of interested stakeholders beyond immediate reach
   of project

1.8. Methodology (max 4 pages)


Methodology (max 4 pages)
Describe in detail:
        the methods of implementation and reasons for the proposed methodology;
  All project activities have been selected for their value in
       promoting awareness and understanding of UNCRPD & Article 32 with state and non-
           state actors in Europe
       encouraging dialogue and building the collaboration and coordination between IDDC
           and target groups and between IDDC members
       providing a consistent and coordinated series of activities across the member state

       drawing on the specialist expertise, learning and best practices of project partners and
           their Southern partners
       strengthening the resources, capacity and the visibility of IDDC and the project

The project focuses on four key target groups involved in development cooperation in the
South in order to promote consistent understanding and implementation at all levels. This will
facilitate communication and synergy between these groups when they interact in Member
States, at European level or in development cooperation initiatives in the South.

The project has been designed so that activities can be implemented by the project partners
working together within the frameworks of either IDDC Task Groups or the IDDC Board or by
project partners working independently on a particular activity or within their own member
state.


where the action is the prolongation of a previous action, explain how the action is intended to build
     on the results of this previous action;
This project builds on the activities of the ”Disability Mainstreaming in Development
Cooperation” supported by DG Employment and Social Affairs of the European Commission.
The earlier project took first steps in raising awareness of the need for inclusive development
approaches while this current project, coming at the critical moment when the UNCRPD has
recently entered into force and is being ratified by Member States, will consolidate and take
forward the results of the previous project and will have a very specific focus on Article 32.

The outputs from the previous project which this current action will make use of comprise:
    data-base of resources and best practices in disability mainstreaming and practical
       ways to achieve this created in 10 project countries and at EU Institutions
    over 360 decision-makers and staff members given training on issues related to
       mainstreaming disability
    Training modules on mainstreaming disability in development cooperation policies for
       various levels and different sectors
    a Manual on how to include the perspectives of persons with disabilities in the project
       cycle management guidelines of the EC

     where the action is part of a larger programme, explain how it fits or is coordinated with this
      programme or with any other possibly planned project. Please specify the potential synergies
      with other initiatives;
Many of the project activities will be implemented by a sub-group of 3-4 partners in the first
instance; for example Handicap International Luxembourg and Sightsavers International will
                                                                                                   32

work on the development and dissemination of learning documents. Once these activities
have been implemented, reviewed and documented, the learning and resources will be
disseminated via the IDDC data-base for other partners to take up.
There is potential synergy with a project being developed by CBM with the IDDC Community-
Based Rehabilitation (CBR) Task Group focussing on the roll-out of the WHO/ILO/UNESCO
CBR Guidelines which are designed to support the implementation of UNCRPD. This CBR
Guidelines training project is focused entirely on training in developing countries and does
not include development actors in the North. The current action will therefore be
complementary as development of a common understanding amongst development actors in
Member States and those in the South will be of benefit to both.

      the procedures for follow up/monitoring and internal/external evaluation;
At the outset of the project, the baseline will be established for the project indicators; this will
provide a reference point for indicators and the subsequent monitoring and evaluation
processes. It will also inform project planning and any fine-tuning of or additions to the
project logframe.
Project monitoring systems will be established at the outset by the Board working with the
Task Group Coordinators and Secretariat who will be responsible for collecting and analysing
the monitoring data. The system will track the intended progress of activities and their
results, using the logframe indicators, but also have mechanisms for picking up any
unanticipated changes in the operating environment or in project results so that the
implications can be assessed and adjustments made where necessary. IDDC’s General
Assembly will also play a key role in project monitoring, providing an annual opportunity for
the wider IDDC membership to check and feedback on progress and to be consulted.
The monitoring system will enable the applicant, working closely with the Board, to ensure
that regular annual reports are provided to the donor.
While the achievement of the outputs will be relatively straightforward to measure, assessing
the extent to which the project meets the medium to longer term objectives of contributing to
the mainstreaming of disability issues in development cooperation will have to be assessed
for some time after the lifetime of the project. Evidence of the continued role of IDDC as an
effective specialist transnational resource on disability and development accessed by
different groups of development actors – EU institutions, national governments and/or
Parliaments, Local Authorities and mainstream NGOs – will be a good indicator of the
project’s effectiveness.

the role and participation in the action of the various stakeholders (applicant, partner(s) other actors
       etc.), and the reasons for which these roles have been assigned to them;
Leonard Cheshire Disability will work with the IDDC Board to manage the project, and to
monitor and evaluate progress.

The IDDC Board has been identified as the most appropriate management structure for
efficient implementation and for maximising the sustainability of the project results; an
additional day for project monitoring and management sessions will be added to Board
Meetings and the General Assembly. The Board will work closely with the Task Groups, the
Secretariat and the project staff who will be sited in the IDDC Secretariat. This integration will
ensure the very close collaboration of the Secretariat and project staff and promote the
sustainability of project actions after project completion.
The project partners based in the other nine countries each bring different skills and
experiences and will work to their strengths to advise and support IDDC in the various
activities. Each has identified 3-5 activities that they will be focussing on and all will be
working collaboratively with their mainstream international development partners to advocate
for the mainstreaming of disability to EU institutions, their National Government and/or
Parliament or Local Authorities involved in development cooperation in the South.

     the organisational structure and the team proposed for the implementation of the action (by
      function: there is no need to include the names of individuals);
The project management will be recruited by LCD working closely with IDDC Board who will
manage the project and the Project Coordinator through a designated Board. The applicant
and most of the partners are already represented on the Board; project partners who are not
Board members will be invited to attend project management sessions. This structure is
designed to maximise the integration of the project into IDDC’s core activities, thereby
maximising the ownership, capacity-building and sustainability of the project.
The staff team will comprise a full-time Project Coordinator, an administrative
assistant/bookkeeper and a part-time Communications Officer. Working at the centre of this
hub the Project Coordinator will oversee the local, national and EU level activities and ensure
the coordination of activities, the communication of project feedback and news, the
development of the central information hub and the visibility of the project.
The project partners will each be responsible for the implementation of project actions in the
countries where they have a presence and will seek to influence other members of the IDDC
network to become involved in the project and to expand the geographic remit of the project
to countries now currently covered. The partners will all harmonise their approaches for
supporting the target groups in mainstreaming disability in their development cooperation.
IDDC is also a partner since this status will facilitate building the capacity of the secretariat
and Task Groups and will promote the sustainability of the project outputs.

     the main means proposed for the implementation of the action (equipment, materials and
      supplies to be acquired or rented for the implementation of the action);

The existing IDDC office infrastructure is largely sufficient for the implementation of the
action. Some additional office equipment and supplies (computers plus software and
equipment for producing accessible alternative formats) will be required. The Task Groups
or individual project partners will implement the individual actions and IDDC website,
newsletter and routine Task Group meetings and General Assembly will be used as the basis
for coordination and sharing of learning and experiences. Additional meetings required for
planning, monitoring and reviewing project progress will be attached to or combined with
regular Board meetings wherever possible.

     the attitudes of all stakeholders towards the action in general and the activities in particular.
The project objectives and actions are central to the core purpose and values of IDDC and all
the project partners are committed to the project and have participated in its elaboration.

The target groups include EU Institutions, National Governments’ including their International
                                                                                                          34

    Development Agencies, National Parliaments, Local Authorities involved in Development
    Activities in the South and mainstream development NGOs and platforms in Europe. The
    European Commission has proposed to the Council that the European Community accede to
    the Convention. Because this is the first time that a UN Convention has been signed by the
    European Commission, the UNCRPD there is likely to be more pressure and support for
    ensuring that the EU and its Member States governments work to ensure compliance with it.
    The UN Convention has already been ratified by many of the participating countries so it is
    anticipated that the target groups will be receptive to the aims and activities of the project.


    1.9. Duration and indicative action plan for implementing the action

    The duration of the action will be 36 months.

    Applicants should not indicate a specific start up date for the implementation of the action but simply
    show "month 1", "month 2", etc.

    Applicants are recommended to base the estimated duration for each activity and total period on the
    most probable duration and not on the shortest possible duration by taking into consideration all
    relevant factors that may affect the implementation timetable.

    The activities stated in the action plan should be coherent with and correspond to the activities
    described in detail in section 1.7. The implementing body shall be either the applicant or any of the
    partners, associates or subcontractors. Any months or interim periods without activities must be
    included in the action plan and count towards the calculation of the total estimated duration of the
    action.

    The action plan for the first 12 months of implementation should be sufficiently detailed to give an
    overview of the preparation and implementation of each activity. The action plan for each of the
    subsequent years may be more general and should only list the main activities foreseen for those years.
    To this end, it shall be divided into six-month interim periods (NB: A more detailed action plan for
    each subsequent year will have to be submitted before receipt of new pre-financing payments,
    pursuant to Article 2.1 of the General Conditions of the grant contract).

    The action plan will be drawn up using the following format:

Given the unusual first step of the European Union signing UNCRPD as an international
body, it is assumed that there will be a supportive environment for the implementation of
UNCRPD and thus the project target groups will continue to be receptive and interested,
even if there are other new major concerns start featuring on the development agenda.
It is assumed that mainstream development NGOs and other information resource centres
will maintain their current collaborative approaches to working with IDDC and that new
sources of information will be willing to work with IDDC. It is also assumed that there will be
no major unforeseen adverse changes in the structure or membership of IDDC network.
The project design assumes that, once the additional resources from the project have been
used to create the necessary impetus and establish new relationships and to put UNCRPD
on the international development agenda of state and non-state actors in Europe, it will be
then be possible with fewer resources to maintain the project results – raised awareness of
disability issues, an efficient information hub etc, an enlarged network with greater coverage.

Explain how sustainability will be secured after completion of the action. This may include aspects of
      necessary follow-up activities, built-in strategies, etc.
Financial sustainability: In addition to the reduced requirement for financial resources once
the institutional strengthening has taken place, it is hoped that some of the project activities
initiated by IDDC will be recognised as best practice and adopted by target groups eg
ensuring the participation of Southern partners in Northern development processes. IDDC’s
experience of implementing this project and its resulting increased capacity will improve its
ability to raise funds from other sources eg other projects or marketing its expertise.
Strengthening the network and the recruitment of new members will increase IDDC’s
membership fees and this will support continued part-time staff input on communications
after the end of the project.
Institutional Sustainability: The project structure and management is designed to maximise
the sustainability of the project results: this will be a key consideration for the Board and
Secretariat in their decision-making when managing and implementing the project. This has
already been demonstrated by the part-time Communications Officer post: the project
partners do not wish to create an unsustainable level of activity that cannot be retained. It is
recognised that some ongoing capacity-building will be required after the project to maintain
the effective collaboration of the IDDC Task Groups, both with external stakeholders and
internally. The project design includes continuity planning to develop and implant strategies
for maintaining the benefits beyond the life of the project. Recognition of the added value of
other activities conducted under the IDDC umbrella rather than as individual partners – such
as participation in external events, producing guidance notes and publications, participation
in EU Development Day activities – will result in increased commitment from project partners
to IDDC.
Policy/structural sustainability: The key objective of raising awareness of UNCRPD and
Article 32 and seeking to ensure Member States reflect their commitment in their
development policy and practice will be sustainable. Once part of official policy, there will be
a formal framework within which disability and development actors can advocate and provide
expertise to mainstream state and non-state actors and, if necessary, hold them to account
where implementation is concerned. The project will foster establish institutional dialogue
that will survive and be taken forwards after its completion.
It is the intention of IDDC members that this project will represent a significant step in the
transition from an informal network to a registered NGO. After project completion, IDDC will
be a stronger network with an expanded membership, raised profile and voice and improved
scope and coverage of its services to the different stakeholder groups. This will enable more
effective collaboration and campaigning for the benefit of people with disabilities in the South.
The benefits of this enhanced impact will be recognised by stakeholders all of whom will gain
from and have an interest in IDDC continuing to be an expert central resource for civil society
and EU Member State institutions alike on issues of disability in development.

 Object and results of the action
 The programme focuses on seven urban and rural areas in Pakistan, Bangladesh and India. The main aims are twofold:
  To get disabled children into the classroom by working with teachers, parents, community leaders and national governments to develop inclusive
     curricula programmes and create accessible school buildings
  To work with employers to combat discrimination in the workplace and support disabled people into formal employment. This will include the
     provision of skills training and work placements to disabled people

 The long-term impact of these projects is to change attitudes to disability and foster inclusive environments in which people are empowered to integrate
 and play a productive role in their communities. Advocacy and campaigning activities are carried out at national level in each of the three participating
 countries.

 enrolling over 1,500 disabled children into local primary schools that have been provided with trained teachers and accessible classrooms and sanitation
 facilities. Communities are also mobilised to support and contribute to the project. It should be noted, however, that the programme is not designed
 simply to provide education and benefit to the children and schools involved in the pilots, but rather to have a clear pathway from local pilot projects to
 sustainable national programmes run in each country by the Ministry of Education and local education authorities.

 Object and results of the action
 … This initiative addresses the rights of persons with disabilities in three countries: Sudan, Sierra Leone and Liberia. These countries present a difficult
 environment for the implementation of the new UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities because of recent conflicts. Bringing a new human
 rights instrument into action is proving challenging; however project work in these countries and our efficient collaboration with civil society organisations
 and relevant government agencies will bring positive results in the effective implementation of the Convention.

                                                initiatives following the disaster. This inclusive approach – rather than using a disability-focus in the
                                                rehabilitation – is now seen as a good example in addressing in practice the relevant Articles in the UN
