The three issues are at the intersection of gender and disability: Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH), legal capacity, and Gender-Based Violence (GBV).The methodology for conducting the assessment will include:

  • Desk research, reviewing laws, policies and accountability frameworks available in the WCA region and available reports published by United Nations (UN) agencies, human rights monitoring bodies, and nongovernmental organisations (NGOs);Interviews with key stakeholders, including State officials, national and regional organisations of persons with disabilities (OPDs), organisations providing sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services and gender-based violence (GBV) services, and UN agencies working in the countries; and other stakeholders.Focus group discussions and interviews with women and girls with disabilities in different countries in the WCA region.

The second assignment will be to develop a disability inclusion package for the UNFPA country offices in WCA.

The Disability Inclusion Resource Package will be crafted through a comprehensive and participatory methodology. It will leverage several key phases:

  • Consultative process: The consultant will conduct consultations with UNFPA country office staff, and other relevant stakeholders to ensure the package reflects their needs and priorities.Package Development: Based on the results of the assessment, the package will be structured to provide practical tools and resources for UNFPA country offices. This includes an overview document on the situation of disability inclusion in the region (including in PPT format), training resources (in English and French, Portuguese and Spanish desirable) and assessment tools, and a list of all resources available from UNFPA and other relevant stakeholders (in English and French, Portuguese and Spanish desirable) all tailored to the WCA context and adapted to meet the specific needs of diverse disability groups.Pilot Testing and Refinement: The initial package will be piloted in selected UNFPA country offices. User feedback and lessons learned from this pilot will be incorporated into the final iteration of the package, ensuring its practical effectiveness and adaptability across the WCA region.Knowledge Dissemination and Capacity Building: Finally, the finalized package will be disseminated through a webinar for the WCARO and country office staff. This will ensure the package’s sustainable use and maximize its impact on improving access to essential services for women and girls with disabilities.
