The Global Partnership for Disability and Development (GPDD) is a dynamic new initiative to accelerate inclusion of people with disabilities and their families into development policies and practices and promote fully inclusive global communities. The GPDD was formed to increase collaboration among development agencies and organizations to reduce the extreme poverty and exclusion of the substantial number of children, women and men with disabilities living in poor countries. It supports national, regional, and international action through individual and organisational capacity building, knowledge sharing, research, and networking initiatives.
