Pacific Enable

Pacific Enable will provide a range of activities with the overall goal of improving the lives and opportunities of persons with disabilities in selected Pacific Island Countries (PICs). The activities are targeted to meet existing gaps and to act as catalyzers for further work that will be undertaken by governments and/or development partners.

Assistance with legislative drafting and policy development will be provided to countries that have ratified, or are about to ratify, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). This will be the catalyst for those countries to undertake further work related to the CRPD.

Employment opportunities and building sustainable livelihoods are critical for persons with disabilities. Proposed work is both at the policy level, advocacy with employers as well as service provision through targeted skills development and a community based rehabilitation approach.  The proposed activities will provide leverage for persons with disabilities to move beyond lives of poverty and dependence.

The lack of reliable data on disability prevalence in the Pacific is addressed through work on statistics, in particular through census and national surveys processes. This will draw from global and regional expertise and strengthen ongoing work by the Pacific Statistics Steering Committee. In addition, research will be conducted to explore the barriers to ratification to the CRPD. This research will support the development of a regional advocacy strategy to increase ratification to the Convention.

Early identification and detection of disabilities is fundamental to improving the lives of children with disability. Pilot work in early detection systems will provide a strong basis for this to be replicated throughout the Pacific.
