ADDC Practitioner Interest Forum
13 March 2013
Rebecca Gibb, Assistant Director – Disability Policy Section, AusAID
In 2012, an independent review was undertaken to identify achievements to date, and inform future work under the strategy.
Consultations took place in:
PNG, Samoa, Fiji, Cambodia, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand and Australia.
Early progress under the strategy has been ‘considerable and impressive’.
Progress has been made, including
Increased access to education, health and law and justice services
People with disability have an increased voiceto advocate for their rights as citizens
Several examples of early analysis on barriers to inclusion
Along with considerable gains there is more to be done, including
AusAID capacity and systems strengthened to build awareness and understanding of disability-inclusive development
Up-front analysis on barriers to inclusion and participation in our programs
Committing budget for inclusive design and implementation
Measuring the impact of our work
Continued focus on leadership, both within AusAID and amongst the broader stakeholders in disability-inclusive development.
We are working to ensure that AusAID staff are confident and have the tools to promote and implement disability-inclusive development.
Early analysis on barriers to inclusion (societal, institutional, physical)
AusAID’s Accessibility Design Guide provides a policy framework and design standards to enhance accessibility of the built environment in Australian aid activities.
AusAID needs to respond to strong interest from stakeholders in the Strategy and its implementation.
- we will do this through systematically collecting and sharing evidence on our successes and lessons learned.
Australia has an important role to play in the 2013 High Level Meeting and the Post-2015 agenda.
