Situation Analysis on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in Kenya

This engagement involves conducting a Situation Analysis on Disability Inclusion to guide the UN in identifying priorities where the Partnership on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (PRPD)

program funding can provide the biggest impact in accelerating the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) implementation and enhancing disability inclusion in broader development processes.

The Situation Analysis is designed to provide enough information to get a sense of priorities, issues and which areas require further analysis, investment, and effort. Information that would be used to inform future analysis and programming.

The analysis will be conducted through a multi-stakeholder process and will focus on the essential preconditions for disability inclusion. It will build on a human rights-based understanding of change processes, where empowerment and collective action of rights holders (persons with disabilities and their families) is a key precondition along with sufficient capacity and authority (human, systemic and financial) of duty bearers to fulfil their obligations as outlined in national legislation and international conventions

Specifically, the situation analysis seeks to conduct a comprehensive review of the national context. The partners will engage in active dialogue on the contextual factors affecting CRPD and SDG implementation and the preconditions to disability inclusion in order to ensure that programs are based on national needs and respond to national challenges.

Ultimately, the situational analysis will result in the development of a full program proposal.
