Additional resources and implementation

  • Building on the objective of SDG 4 (“ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all”), we aim to make all the World Bank financed projects/programs in education disability inclusive by 2025.
    Timeframe and/or implementation plan: Until 2025 for ensuring all education projects/programs are disability-inclusive
  • The World Bank welcomes the opportunity to host the Initiative for Inclusive Education (IEI) with support from DFID and Norad which would support clients with the necessary technical expertise and resources to help catalyze their progress in reaching children with disabilities and in exploring innovative and inclusive pedagogies and learning environments with new ways of facilitating education.
    Timeframe and/or implementation plan: Three years
  • For private sector projects, IFC is committed to promoting an inclusive agenda, which includes the right environment for equal opportunities for people with disabilities (including physical, learning, sensory, emotional), as well as non-discrimination. The IFC Education team, together with input from the World Bank, aims to develop a set of principles for education investments which will help push forward the inclusion and non-discrimination agenda in the sector, complementing other relevant focus areas such as gender, race, ethnicity, language, harassment and will include specific references to disability inclusion.
    Timeframe and/or implementation plan: Two years
