We team with other organisations to provide inclusive programmes, including working in consortia to co-deliver programmes; supporting the engagement of OPDs as programme partners; and providing technical support and capacity development on inclusion through the life of programme.
For example: We worked within INGO consortia and the disability movement in the Pacific to implement a regional project under the Australian Humanitarian Partnership Disaster READY programme. Through this, we have supported the Pacific Disability Forum (PDF) and its member OPDs to determine their vision of disability inclusive preparedness for disaster response. This resulted in the development of the Disability Inclusive Preparedness for Response Strategy for the Pacific, which guides the engagement of PDF and its members in all DRR programming. To achieve this vision, we formed a “Triangle Team” (Inclusion Advisory Group, PDF and national OPDs) to complement each other and strengthen one another’s capacity. Together we influence the activities of the consortia members led by Plan, World Vision and Oxfam.
