This new database created by the World Bank and Leonard Cheshire Disability with funding provided by the Government of Japan through the World Bank, provides information on Government projects that aim to include people with disabilities in mainstream education, health and rehabilitation, and livelihoods programmes. This innovative database is the first of its kind and contains information that has been compiled from projects in Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Pacific. In addition to project details, it also provides information on the legal environment and policy framework for persons with disabilities, as well as contact details of Government officials in-charge of these projects. The database aims to promote communication and collaboration throughout the international disability community and among Governments to help develop effectiveness and mutual accountability in implementing the CRPD. Users can browse project information by thematic area or country, as well as register a new project on the database.
