Participatory Monitoring of the UN-convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities


Men and women with learning disabilities and intellectual disabilities in Palestine are not yet sufficiently included in the process of monitoring of the implementation of the UNCRPD. They lack the professional support and accessible information to fully and effectively participate in decision-making and legal processes in order to advocate and speak up for themselves.

The design of the project intended to enhance the capacities of the participants to include persons with learning disabilities and psycho-social disabilities in the monitoring process of the UNCRPD, and to develop and provide accessible information on legal instruments and procedures applying the concepts of easy language and easy-to-read formats.

This project was implemented with the support of the strengthening Civil Society Programme - GIZ, commissioned by The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).



The aim of the project is to enhance capacities of concerned active civil society organizations including persons with disabilities organizations on the monitoring of the CRPD in a participatory manner, and focusing on the inclusion of persons with intellectual and mental disabilities in the entire process. And provide the targeted participants with a deep understanding on accessibility of information on legal and human rights instruments with special focus on the concept of plain language and easy-to-read approach.


Target Groups:

  • People with learning and intellectual disabilities.
  • Staff of several civil society organizations and Disabled persons organizations.


Project Results:

3-days workshop on systematic and participatory monitoring of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
