Conference: From Local to Global Level - Community Based Rehabilitation – A Strategy for Achieving Inclusive Development

  • Bonn, Germany
  • May 3-4, 2012
  • Behinderung und Entwicklungszusammenarbeit Caritas international / Germany CBM
About the Conference
The inclusion of persons with disabilities in projects and programmes for development has attained a binding quality through the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD). This applies to all essential areas and levels of development cooperation.

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.
