disability and poverty available data
Disability and poverty – available data
  • One person in 20 worldwide has a disability, of which more than three out of five live in a developing country (UN figures)
  • One in five of the world’s poorest have a disability (World Bank estimate)
  • US$ 1.71–2.23 trillion of global GDP is lost because of disability, which adds up to a rate of between 5.35% and 6.97%.
  • 82% of persons with disabilities live below the poverty line in developing countries (UN figures)
hunger and disability
Hunger and disability
  • 20% of impairments are caused by malnutrition
  • Between 250,000 and 500,000 children go blind every year from Vitamin A Deficiency (VAD)
  • There are over 16 million mentally handicapped and nearly 49.5 million people with lesser degrees of brain damage due to Iodine Deficiency Disorders (IDD).
  • More than half of all pregnant women in the world are anemic, of whom 90% live in developing countries
disability poverty and hunger lack of knowledge
Disability, poverty and hunger – lack of knowledge
  • Global figures show trends, but do not explain linkages in detail
  • Global figures do not show specific circumstances in countries and/or regions
how to achieve mdg 1
How to achieve MDG 1?
  • MDG 1 is the central MDG and linked to all other goals
  • Economic (pro-poor) growth
  • Social protection
  • Increased agricultural production
  • Disaster management
translation into action
Translation into action
  • Targets were set based on global trends, not country specific situation  some countries adapted the targets and create national MDGs
  • Targets define the end of the road, but not the road itself  national/regional policies, programmes, budget and other governmental plans translate the targets into action
  • Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSPs)
  • Programmes and projects of non-governmental development actors
  • Origin: World Bank and IMF introduced this concept in the late 1990s to have a basis for debt relief, grants and other support to low-income countries
  • Basic idea: Concerned countries formulate their own strategy leading to poverty reduction and economic growth
  • Stakeholders: Government, civil society, international donors …
mdg 1 and disability in prsp examples

    • A public works program to employ the poor in building roads and other infrastructure during difficult times; and,

“Safety Net Programmes (SNPs): in Bangladesh Allowances for the Distressed Disabled Persons (ADDP): In the budget of 2005/06, the Government has introduced allowances for the distressed disabled persons and provided an allocation of Tk 250 million for this purpose.”

lessons learned from prsp
Lessons learned from PRSP
  • If disabled people‘s organisations are involved in the policy formulation, proposed actions will not longer follow a charity-based approach
  • Empowerment of DPOs and other civil society stakeholders is effective
  • International NGOs can be facilitator and door-opener
  • Lack of data and knowledge about disability and poverty makes it difficult ton propose concrete actions
  • What can be done on the level of the developing countries?
  • On the level of the international community?
  • Are MDGs really the ultimate goals?
