National Plan for Labor Inclusion of  Persons with Disabilities

Despite growing global awareness of the issue of disability, relatively little is known about the actual situation and daily struggles of people with disabilities, particularly in developing countries.

This joint UN proposal will employ a twin-track approach involving targeted as well as mainstreaming interventions in Mozambique. The work proposed with the National Institute of Statistics is a clear example of mainstreaming, whereby indicators on issues related to people with disabilities will be incorporated in a quarterly, national survey to improve data collection as a prerequisite for defining more accurate policies and programmes. On the other hand, the collaboration between UNDP, Handicap International and Rede de Assistência as Vitimas de Minas is a targeted intervention, which seeks to empower the often marginalized group of mine survivors to claim their rights. Finally, the support to the Mozambican Association of People with Disabilities (FAMOD) is an interesting example of an intervention with an inherently dual nature, as the stronger representation of a disabled people’s organisation in national fora will contribute to the advancement of the creation of a “society for all”. FAMOD will receive capacity building support for the “Mozambicanisation” of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities through a review of the existing legislative / policy framework and for monitoring its implementation.
