CBM-Australia has led the way on developing a ground-breaking report, “We have a key role now”: Lessons learned from partnerships with organisations of persons with disabilities. The report celebrates what is working well in our partnership approach and identifies measures to further strengthen our partnership with organisations of persons with disabilities. It is offered as an example of what partnership can mean and as a contribution to the wider efforts of integrating organisations of persons with disabilities into international cooperation.
A listening exercise was led by CBM Australia from 2020 to 2021 across 14 countries and 32 organisations to gather feedback on our partnerships with organisations of persons with disabilities, in our field programs, our advisory work, and in our advocacy efforts. We gathered feedback from OPD partners on their experiences of partnership to date, as a starting point to build upon. Read about what we found and what we have committed to.
