The project aims to contribute to advancing the rights of persons with disabilities (PWD) in Benin by seizing the moment around the recently-adopted Law on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and supporting the effective implementation of the National Policy on the Protection and Inclusion of PWD 2012-2021 through contributing to the achievement of three complementary outcomes combining human rights-based mainstreaming and targeted interventions over a 3-year period : i) National legal and policy frameworks in 4 targeted sectors (education, health, decent employment, gender equality) are improved; ii)  National legal and policy frameworks in 4 targeted sectors are effectively implemented in compliance with CRPD in support of enhanced protection and promotion of PWD’s rights in Benin; and   iii)) Capacities and awareness of key national, local and community stakeholders are reinforced to ensure enhanced access by PWD, particularly children under 18 years of age, and women with disabilities, to community-based rehabilitation (CBR) services in 4 pilot communes (Malanville, Karimama, Za-Kpota, Cotonou), which are among Benin’s most vulnerable communes.


By fostering a multi-stakeholder approach, the project brings together the capacities and comparative advantages of four UN agencies -UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF, WHO in partnership with UNV and under the UNRCO’s coordination -and key government and non-government stakeholders at national, local and community levels under the leadership of the Ministry in charge of Social Affairs  (MASMF) as the designated national disability lead agency, and with full participation of Organizations of persons with disabilities (DPOs).
