Strengthening Disabled Peoples Organization's Role in Multi-Stakeholder Dialogue for Democratic Change in Jordan, Egypt and Occupied Palestinian Territories

2014

The Information and Research Center - King Hussein Foundation (IRCKHF) conducted a baseline assessment of key national Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and government representatives to be actively engaged in Handicap International's future plans to support Disabled Peoples Organizations (DPOs) in advocating for disability rights and inclusive policies in Jordan. The IRCKHF delivered presentations during the regional trainings and workshops on subjects such as research methodologies as well as monitoring and evaluation. The project will contribute to a better understanding of disability-related policies and practices in view of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, the provision of technical support to DPOs, and the development of national advocacy strategies to support DPOs.

The project in Jordan is part of a regional initiative which includes Egypt and Palestine -occupied territories.
