Policy, legislation and its implementation
We will support the development and implementation of national legislation and policies that promote the rights of people with disabilities. We will support the empowerment of people with disabilities, and their representative organisations, to hold governments to account for commitments made on disability. We will support the participation and engagement of DPOs and CSOs in national and international monitoring and review processes – notably the CRPD, the SDGs and those emanating from the Global Disability Summit. 

Timeframe and/or implementation plan
There will be a particular push over the next few years with each of the countries where we work focusing around key national events and opportunities for advocacy. For example in Pakistan, we will use the political interest generated by upcoming election.
