Accelerating the implementation of the UNCRPD in South Africa

Following the pronouncement of a joint United Nations fund to promote the rights of persons with disabilities, a joint United Nations programme proposal was developed by UNCT in collaboration with the Department of Women, Children and Persons with Disability (DWCPD). The programme is aimed at achieving three complementary outcomes to: (1) strengthen M&E capacity for effective oversight and advocacy for promotion of rights of persons with disabilities; (2) establish a CRPD compliant legal and policy framework to implement provisions of the Convention in South Africa; and (3) reduce economic vulnerability of persons with disabilities. The programme implementation is envisaged to take approximately 18 months (Feb 2013 - Jul 2014). A total cost of $585,290 is required to achieve the stated outcomes and $349,890 is expected to come from the UNPRDP fund.  The participating organisations which include UNDP, UNICEF and OHCHR will contribute the balance.

UNDP will be the lead agency and responsible for the overall coordination and M&E technical support of the programme, UNICEF will provide technical expertise on child-disability issues, OHCHR will focus on international standards and legislations on the rights of people with disabilities, while technical expertise on the needs for women with disabilities will be sourced from UNFPA and UN Women. These agencies have been individually supporting the DWCPD based on their respective mandates and comparative advantages. UNPRPD funding will bring together the UN agencies to collaborate on this joint programme for promoting the rights of persons with disability in South Africa.
