SDG Charter Signatory

Dutch Coalition on Disability and Development (DCDD)

Inclusion Works

About us


DCDD is a coalition of organisations and individuals operating in the field of disability, development cooperation and service provision. Our main focus is on advocacy towards Dutch Parliament and Ministries, development NGO’s and private sector. We always look for allies, strengthening our main goal: full and effective participation of people with disabilities. Next, we also would like to strengthen the network by learning together what disability-inclusion means in practice.

Through lobbying and advocacy DCDD monitors the agenda of the Dutch Parliament, the development of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and provides input to Members of Parliament on relevant issues. We will also contribute to the shadow reporting on UNCRPD Article 32 and encourage it's implementation in an effective way. Moreover DCDD contributed to the discussion on the implementation of the SDG “Leave no one behind agenda” by the Dutch government in 2016, in the publication “Ready for Change”, an initiative of Partos.


Thematic priorities:

  • Inclusive humanitarian aid
  • Economic Development
