Persons with disabilities have the same rights as everyone else to protection from basic social and economic risks and to access appropriate services, regardless of their disability or gender. For everyone to benefit from social protection systems, the related policies and programmes must be designed in such a way as to include persons with disabilities.

In 2014, members of the ICED research team from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine conducted a study on inclusive social protection for people with disabilities in Peru and Tanzania. National partners included REPOA in Tanzania and SODIS and CRONICAS in Peru. Overall, the study was led and coordinated by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). 

The purpose of the study was to establish how to design social protection systems that adequately and systematically include people with disabilities. The aim was to produce a scientifically based analysis and develop a toolbox and set of guidelines for project implementers based on the findings of the study.

Tools and Guidance

Project-circleFollowing the findings of the research project, specific tools and guidance were developed to assist others who are planning on creating and implementing inclusive projects and programmes. These tools and guidance have been aligned with the project cycle to make it easier to identify appropriate actions across the key stages of your own project. The tools should be adapted accordingly to your project and there should be an emphasis on inclusion from the earliest stages of the project cycle. 

The tools and guidance for inclusive social protection projects and programmes can be found on the GIZ website.
