This paper presents the knowledge, attitudes and practices of West Africa Water Initiative partners in issues of disability and accessibility in WATSAN services and programs. The main findings were that partners were aware of the disadvantages and lacked experience and technical skills in dealing with issues of people with disabilities. They recognised that WATSAN facilities were often difficult to access. Practical ideas and suggestions are provided to address these problems. The information from this study also helped in the designing of a training workshop for West Africa Water Initiative (WAWI) partners and people with disabilities in some of these practical approaches

Disabled people and the internet : experiences, barriers and opportunities

This report explores how provision of goods and services over the Internet affects people’s lives. While the Internet might have some capability to provide goods, services and communication at a distance, improving access in doing so, some research findings in the early days of e-commerce suggested diminished access for some groups.
This research focuses on the impact of the Internet on people with disabilities. There is the possibility that provision of information and services through the Internet might actually narrow rather than widen choices, because it might lead to the phasing out of traditional ways of providing services preferred by some disabled people
