G.P.D.D. meeting to be held in Delhi

D.N.I.S. News Network – The Global Partnership for Disability and Development (G.P.D.D.) meet is being organised on 01 February 2006 at Ashok Hotel, New Delhi, with the Government and civil society participating.

At the meeting with Government officials, D.P.O., N.G.O., and C.S.O. representatives, G.P.D.D. will present itself and its Working Groups and learn how inclusive development is being practiced or not practiced in India. Following this, there will be meetings of G.P.D.D. Working Groups with Government officials, D.P.O., N.G.O., C.S.O. and donor representatives, to explore how the Working Groups can benefit from the Indian experience.

G.P.D.D. is a new initiative to accelerate inclusion of people with disabilities and their families into development policies and practices. The philosophy of G.P.D.D. is that the social and environmental obstacles that marginalise and impoverish disabled people cannot be dissolved by any kind of entity or organisation, but only through the collaborative efforts of diverse stakeholders, including developing countries, bilateral and multilateral donors, U.N. agencies, national and international N.G.O.s, foundations and other stakeholders. The G.P.D.D. was formed to increase collaboration among these groups to reduce poverty and exclusion of disabled people in third world countries.
