8 Case Studies on the inclusion of people with disabilities and their families in development initiatives.

This booklet shows what disability inclusive development for poverty alleviation looks like in a range of settings and with different challenges through eight case studies of projects funded by CBM Australia through the Australian Government NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). 

Disability inclusive development actively includes people with disability and their families in development processes and programs. The disability inclusive approach to poverty reduction recognises that including people with disabilities creates more accessible and inclusive communities and results in more successful and sustainable development for all.1

The case studies provide an honest reflection on the inclusion of people with disabilities and their families in development initiatives with the aim of bringing sustained poverty alleviation. Successes, challenges and lessons from each of these eight partner organisations are shared.
