This in-depth analysis and disability disaggregation of NDP targets aim to contribute to the vision of reducing inequality, fighting poverty and creating employment, also for persons with disabilities. The analysis determines that disability equity targets be set at 7% by 2020 and 10 % by 2030 if we are to redress past marginalisation and ensure equitable participation and beneficiation by persons with disabilities.
It is envisaged that this publication will be used as a key resource to guide the country’s inclusive development planning and service delivery in both the public and private sectors, with persons with disabilities as equal participants and beneficiaries.
