Database on Government projects that include persons with disabilities created

D.N.I.S. News Network, India: The World Bank and Leonard Cheshire Disability (L.C.D.) have created a new database which provides information on Government projects that aim to include people with disabilities in mainstream education, health and rehabilitation, and livelihood programmes. This first of its kind database, funded by the Japanese Government, was formally launched on March 15 in Bangkok at an international conference organised by L.C.D. and United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (E.S.C.A.P.).

Information included in the database has been compiled from projects in Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia and the Pacific. In addition to the details of the project, the database includes information on the legal environment and policy framework for people with disabilities and contact details of Government officials in charge of these projects, so that users with disabilities can contact them directly for further information.

The database has been created with the aim to promote communication and collaboration among the international disability community and also between Governments. It also hopes to further development effectiveness and mutual accountability of Governments in implementing the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (C.R.P.D.).
