IDDC - International Disability & Development Consortium.
The IDDC and its members aim to promote inclusive development. Inclusive development means respecting the full human rights of every person, acknowledging diversity, eradicating poverty and ensuring that all people are fully included and can actively participate in development processes and activities regardless of age, gender, disability, state of health, ethnic origin or any other characteristic. IDDC’s main objectives are: ▪To promote the inclusion of the disability dimension, as well as appropriate disability-specific approaches, in all development policy and practice. ▪To improve the practice of the member organisations by collaborating and sharing experience about policy and practice. ▪To support the exchange of information and knowledge about inclusive development, especially between people and organisations in economically poorer countries, by the wide distribution of information. IDDC acts as a vehicle for its member organisations to express their shared beliefs and principles and shape these into a strong voice in the disability and development field. IDDC's work is primarily led by the Task Groups where members collaborate to exchange views and ideas, and agree upon common strategies and positions. These Task Groups are thus fundamental to the implementation of the IDDC objectives.
