Situation Analysis of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, Republic of Moldova
Many countries still struggle to transform the CRPD into concrete policies, systems, programmes and services that uphold the rights of persons with disabilities. It is urgent that governments and their implementation partners deliver on their SDG commitments through CRPD-compliant interventions. To support countries in the most catalytic way requires understanding the main bottlenecks and priorities in each country in relation to the fulfilment of the CRPD. We needed to know who the key stakeholders are, how implementation/monitoring mechanisms are functioning (or not), which capacities stakeholders may need to improve, and which ongoing development processes could be leveraged to become more disability inclusive.
This situational analyses was designed to:
■ Inform the design of future PRPD funded programmes in the country and serve as a baseline for them;
■ Inform UNCTs of gaps in achieving disability inclusion in ongoing national processes and programmes and recommend further, in-depth analysis where needed;
■ Build a base of mutual understanding and working relationships among UN entities; government, OPDs and other civil society organizations, as well as the private sector and academia, as the basis for future co-design of joint programmes;
■ Strengthen the capacity of those stakeholders to more effectively include and address the rights of persons with disabilities as outlined in the CRPD; and,
■ Serve as an advocacy tool for ODPs and other civil society partners, both national and international.
