The Washington Group has assembled an array of resources on disability. These provide background and guidance about the WG, the definition and measurement of disability, and how disability is manifested in the international agenda, particularly within the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability and the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development.

To understand disability and design evidence-based and inclusive policies, governments and development organizations need reliable disability disaggregated data. However, multidimensional nature of disability makes measurement difficult. Data is patchy; where it is available, definitions and methodologies vary, making comparisons across countries problematic. Finding ways of collecting better data on persons with disabilities will help identify strategies to improve their well-being and implementing the SDGs.
This webinar covers the following topics:
• What are known data gaps on disability, and how they can be filled?
• What are existing sources of data on disability?
• What datasets could be analyzed from disability perspective?
• How can we build and use evidence for more inclusive policy and development decisions?
This webinar is part of the World Bank Social Development Webinar Series.
