Implementation and monitoring
Monitoring also has the function of being able to adapt if it becomes evident that the project’s objectives cannot be reached if continuing on the same track. Organisations of Persons with Disabilities (OPDs) should be invited to important project milestone events including projects visits for monitoring. They can be invited to annual project reviews, to provide feedback on the implementation and to provide input on evolving or additional needs. Moreover, representatives of OPDs should also be part of important meetings with embassies, governmental officials, etc.
OPDs can bring value to this phase by:
- providing technical knowledge and accessibility audit support to identify barriers and for providing accessibility advice on physical environments, information and communication, including technologies;
- providing training and awareness raising on disability inclusion to the implementing team;
- support in monitoring implementation using indicators on disability inclusion that are in the log frame by assisting in gathering disability disaggregated data;
- participate in monitoring or steering committees;
- disseminate information and raise awareness about the inclusivity of the project.
