IDDC in a nutshell
-> Download leaflet What is IDDC here (updated version June 2012)
The International Disability and Development Consortium is a global consortium of 26 disability and development non-governmental organisations (NGOs), mainstream development NGOs and disabled people's organisations (DPOs) supporting disability and development work in more than 100 countries around the world.
The aim of IDDC is to promote inclusive development internationally, with a special focus on promoting the full and effective enjoyment of human rights by all persons with disabilities living in economically poor communities in lower and middle-income countries.
IDDC’s main objectives are:
- To promote the inclusion of the disability dimension, as well as appropriate disability-specific approaches, in all development policy and practice.
- To improve the practice of the member organisations by collaborating and sharing experience about policy and practice.
- To support the exchange of information and knowledge about inclusive development, especially between people and organisations in economically poorer countries, by the wide distribution of information.
Please note that IDDC is not a funding body
Unfortunately we are unable to consider any funding applications, because we currently do not have the capacity to provide funding for projects. However, our member organisations all have independent and varying funding criteria and may be able to offer help and support.
