This report contributes to the global discourse on education finance by providing a disability perspective on donor and government investment into inclusive education. The report looks at the benefits of financing disability - inclusive education, the current state of education financing with regard to inclusion, and what needs to change in order for education financing to effectively support the realisation of Sustainable Development Goal 4 and Article 24 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD). Representatives of nine leading bilateral and multilateral education donors were surveyed on their agencies’ efforts towards disability inclusive education: DFAT (Australia), DFID (UK), European Union, GIZ (Germany), Global Partnership for Education, Norad (Norway), UNICEF, USAID (USA), and World Bank

The development of poverty reduction strategies in recent years has seen a shift from a focus on income growth to a multidimensional approach, which aims to help the poor through improving the performance of all social sectors, including health, education and social protection. While the Millennium Development Goals espouse this view, progress is often patchy and unsatisfactory mainly due to insufficient funds and ineffective donors' involvement. This study discusses current financing practices through traditional project aid. It shows how and why they often fail to promote local ownership, sustainability, poor people priorities, capacity development and aid coordination. The study calls for the adoption of 'new' aid instruments, highlighting the benefits of direct budgetary support (DBS) and transitional arrangements, such as basket funding. This issues study is aimed at policy makers, donors, and NGOs, and it is an essential tool for anyone interested in the debate on development funding
