3 People with disabilities are often excluded in poverty-reduction or development projects, as evidenced by the Millennium Development Goals failure to include disability in its strategies. (see: www.includeeverybody.org) There are high economic costs of excluding people with disabilities on the development agenda and the productive cycle, and it is estimated that the global annual GDP loss due to exclusion of disabled people from the labor market is between US$1.37 and 1.94 trillion.

4 There are new opportunities for reconstructing infrastructure that lends itself to improved inclusivity Enhanced coordination with stronger linkages between emergency and development aid, can ensure sustainable financing. Utilizing this opportunity for creation of a new and more inclusive society is key to sustainable development.

6 Understand that people with disabilities are a highly heterogeneous group with different needs, capacities, and barriers. Begin social analysis of disability concerns during the project design stage. Define disability and use the context-appropriate terms. – Disability issues include sensitive terminology – appropriate, culturally relevant terminology is important to building working relationships with stakeholders and beneficiaries.

7 How do we ensure the inclusion of Identify and consult with stakeholders in the Haiti disability sector. Acquire quantitative and qualitative data on the disability situation in Haiti. An Initiative of the GPDD Working Group on Haiti and the IDB disability in project programming?
8 How do we ensure the inclusion of disability Identify and support projects in which inclusion of the perspectives of people with disabilities is relevant. Support or develop specific activities for reducing the physical, institutional, and social barriers faced by persons with disabilities. Ensure that disability is included within the project budget from the outset. An Initiative of the GPDD Working Group on Haiti and the IDB in project identification / formulation?
9 Utilize the twin-track approach to projects, with – disability-specific projects that aim to increase the empowerment and participation of people with disabilities; – disability-inclusive projects that aim to ensure that all reconstruction and development includes and is accessible to all persons with disabilities. Collect data through the monitoring system to give evidence about the impact/outcomes in your project on people with disabilities. Disability- specific projects and initiatives Disability- inclusive projects and initiatives Persons with disabilities are included in all development and reconstruction on equal footing with the general population. An Initiative of the GPDD Working Group on Haiti and the IDB How do we ensure the inclusion of disability project implementation & monitoring?
10 Gather input from persons with disabilities to evaluate whether the project outcome had any impact for them. Evaluate the project budget for inclusivity of disability. If disability has not been included in the original project, during the evaluation phase attempt to evaluate the effects of not including disability in the project. Use the evaluation process to generate ideas for future disability-specific or disability-inclusive projects. An Initiative of the GPDD Working Group on Haiti and the IDB How do we ensure the inclusion of disability project evaluation?
11 Evaluate the current level of inclusivity with your organization and its programs, then take action to work on the areas identified as less inclusive. Visit: http://www.usaid.gov/about_usaid/disability/disinclusi on_checklist.pdf and fill out MIUSAs checklist for inclusion, and follow its recommendations for further action. http://www.usaid.gov/about_usaid/disability/disinclusi on_checklist.pdf Take Action!

12 Include and consult with persons with disabilities and key disability stakeholders in the community throughout any project cycle. Utilize the various tools found in the Make Development Inclusive toolkit (http://www.make-development- inclusive.org/toolsen/pcm_toolbox.pdf), such as Who are the stakeholders for disability inclusion? (p. 213), How to find DPOs on the web (p. 198), and Accessible Meetings or Events (p. 183).http://www.make-development- inclusive.org/toolsen/pcm_toolbox.pdf Take Action!

13 Ensure that from the outset, your project budget includes the consideration of any costs associated with inclusion. See the Make Development Inclusive Toolbox, p. 186 for help on budgeting the inclusion of a disability perspective in your projects Include disability in your monitoring and evaluation of programmes. See the Make Development Inclusive Toolbox, p. 193 for tips on how to include disability in the M & E process. Take Action! An Initiative of the GPDD Working Group on Haiti and the IDB
