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.
Disaggregation by Disability Status: A Report on Selected Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Indicators
The inclusion of persons with disabilities in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has become an uncontested priority with the principle of ‘leaving no one behind’ in sharp contrast with the past when people with disabilities were largely excluded from the global development agenda.
To ensure people with disabilities are not left behind, sufficient data must be collected so that all person-level Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicators can be disaggregated by disability status. This will allow for the comprehensive monitoring of the well-being and inclusion of persons with disabilities, and the advancement of their rights.
This article gives an overview of the progress made using the WG questions for the purposes of disaggregation.
