Civil Society Advocacy, Children with Disabilities, and the Sustainable Development Goals

Project: Internal Grant

Project Details


We often associate ending poverty with the opportunity to attend and benefit from formal education. SDG#4 codifies the connection of education and life opportunities by calling for “inclusive and equitable quality education and…lifelong learning opportunities for all.” This study seeks to identify the role of Organizations for Persons with Disabilities, also called Disabled Persons Organizations (DPOs) in policy advocacy toward inclusive and equitable education (SDG#4) with the long-term goal of ending poverty (SDG#1) and developing decent work opportunities (SDG#8) for persons with disabilities worldwide
