Issued by:
Special Rapporteur on the rights of persons with disabilities
To the 75th session of the General Assembly, October 2020


Twice a year, the Special Rapporteur on the rights of persons with disabilities issues calls for inputs to inform thematic studies to be presented at the Human Rights Council in its March session and at the General Assembly in October.


This thematic study on disability-inclusive international cooperation assesses the extent to which international cooperation, including official development aid, is inclusive of and accessible to persons with disabilities, and to provide guidance to States and international cooperation actors on how to become more disability-inclusive, in line with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The report is based on literature review, donor surveys and interviews with 26 bilateral and multilateral agencies and 10 private donors.
