7th - 8th December 2006
Organised by Christoffel Blindenmission (CBM) Germany
Host: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) GmbH
Venue: GTZ-Haus Berlin, Reichpietschufer 20, 10785 Berlin
In the framework of the EU Mainstreaming Project consortium, of which CBM Germany is a member, detailed mapping of the actual situation of disability in development in Germany has been carried out at the level of the Government, Non-Governmental Organisations and Disabled People's Organisations.
The results described in the Mapping Report Germany indicate that the most promising opportunities for inclusive development cooperation seem to be PRSP initiatives including empowerment and participation of people with disabilities, and wherever possible, with a focus on disabled women.
For this reason, CBM Germany is inviting the relevant stakeholders to participate in this Regional Workshop in order to discuss options of mainstreaming disability in PRSP and develop criteria for training material on the basis of the BMZ/GTZ/World Bank sponsored Manual 'Making PRSP Inclusive', which has been developed and formulated by H.I., CBM and other NGOs and DPOs.
The results of the Workshop will be the starting point for developing training tools and guidelines to be used in future training workshops with other stakeholders and/or countries.
