The International Disability Alliance has launched its 2nd Global Survey on the Participation of organizations of persons with disabilities in Policies and Programmes. Activists and advocates are encouraged to participate!

Why this survey?

We want to hear from disability activists/ advocates active in organisations of persons with disabilities, to learn about the way they are participating in policies and programmes developed by governments and international partners. The survey is part of a strategy to monitor meaningful participation of OPDs and to hold decision-makers accountable, in line with Articles 4.3 and 32 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

A first survey of this kind was conducted by IDA in December 2018 (report available here), and we plan to conduct more surveys in the future to observe the evolution of the participation of OPDs over time. 


Who can respond to this survey?

The online survey is for activists/ advocates involved in organisations of persons with disabilities (OPDs), including members, staffs, and volunteers. 

For this survey, an Organisation of Persons with Disabilities is an organisation or association that is governed by persons with disabilities. There can be several individual respondents from the same organisation.

Your participation is fully voluntary. You can decide to withdraw at any time.


How can you respond to the survey?

The 2nd IDA Global Survey on OPD Participation in Policies and Programmes has been developed on the iData Survey Tool. iData is a new web platform owned by IDA and has been specifically created for collecting and sharing accurate information, data and evidence on the situation of persons with disabilities globally.

iData provides IDA with a platform that meets the highest international standards for digital accessibility (WCAG 2.1) and integrates additional functions to optimize accessibility for all persons with disabilities. The participants will be able to activate accessibility features to customize their survey experience. For more information, please see the iData accessibility statement.

In the platform, you will be able to read more information, such as data protection and terms of use, before deciding to continue with the survey. You can register on iData using your e-mail address or continue to complete the questionnaire as a guest.

This IDA Global Survey is available in English, International Sign, Spanish, German, French, Arabic, Chinese, Serbian, Russian, and Hindi. To participate, use the links below:
