Promoting rights of people with disabilities in Indonesia

Indonesia has during the last decade experienced steady progress in raising per capita income and significant progress in alleviating poverty. However, the country faces challenges in pursuing equitable development. A disabled person for example is often socially excluded, and faces considerable discrimination in accessing health and other services, education, and employment.

In order for Indonesia that is highly decentralized middle-income country, strong institutions representing the disabled people themselves, as well as improved and developed systems and national disability architecture to support policy-making processes is rapidly needed.

Disability issues still do not get enough attention from the decision makers. Hence, a strong disability movement is wished to bring together and coordinate DPOs advocating for disability rights. Disabled people themselves need to get included in decision making processes and discussions, for stronger civil society movement.

For strengthened disability architecture, the UNCT in Indonesia will address two specific areas of interventions advised by all stakeholders: 1) to reinforce national institutions and mechanisms for better and stronger coordination in raising awareness and promoting disability rights that will remove bottlenecks enabling sustainable government interventions and allocation of budgets for disability, and 2) to strengthen technical capacity of Statistics Indonesia to provide with improved disability data for more strategic policies concerning persons with disabilities. These issues will be addressed through the comparative advantages of the UN agencies in Indonesia including technical, thematic expertise, programmes and initiatives, and the UN’s overall mandate on normative and operational work on the country level.
