The “Action Plan for the inclusion of persons with disabilities in German development cooperation” was discussed yesterday during a presentation in Bonn. Civil society organisations brought up some points that need further thinking:
- The action plan provides little detail on how concrete measures will be taken
- What are the indicators to measure the success and achievements of the action plan.
- The role within German state international cooperation is unclear. Will the action plan be a rather weak tool or a comprehensive plan to improve German politics in international development?
At least some details were provided on the next steps. A final version of the action plan will probably be ready end October 2012 and it will be launched in the months November and December.
