In the framework of the IDA Inclusive Education Flagship Initiative - a component of the Disability Capacity Building Programme of the United Kingdom’s Foreign Commonwealth Development Office (FCDO) – the IDA Inclusive Education Task Team decided to produce a compilation report of OPD-led evidence around CRPD Article 24 (Education) and SDG4 (Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all).

This compilation report looks at the enabling mechanisms and/or key barriers that impede the right to inclusive education for learners with disabilities, as identified by OPDs. It outlines key challenges and gaps in implementation of SDG 4 and Article 24 of the CRPD and identifies common trends across countries and regions. The objective is to understand what OPDs are highlighting as major challenges facing the implementation of inclusive education in their countries, and their priorities in this area.

As such, this compilation supports the implementation of the second phase of the IE Flagship Initiative, which aims at disseminating, enriching and consolidating the OPD-led, evidence-based consensus perspective on how to achieve SDG 4 in line with the CRPD and its Article 24, enshrined in the 2020 IDA Inclusive Education Global Report. In particular, the compilation report is meant to serve as a source of evidence and examples to inform further work of IDA and its members to advance the right to education, especially in our work with OPDs at the national level by disseminating the vision and a common understanding of CRPD Article 24 while exploring how to localize this vision and adapt it to a diversity of contexts.
