With the new Guidelines for Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) of 2010, jointly developed by WHO, UNESCO and ILO, a strategy has been devised by means of which inclusive development cooperation can be implemented in practice. These CBR Guidelines are not limited to aspects of rehabilitation, but address all domains of life within communities, and can be a useful instrument on the national and international level. In this way, CBR can substantially support the implementation of the UNCRP as well as the goals of other international developmental policies, such as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
Based on practical examples, possibilities for applying CBR in essential domains of everyday life will be presented. In addition, discussions will focus on opportunities when using CBR as an instrument for opening projects and programmes to inclusion.
