Update: Action Plan on inclusion in German international development

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.
