The Twin-track approach combines disability mainstreaming and targeted support for persons with disabilities. Only by linking the two tracks, can the overall objective be reached: to grant all human beings equal rights and opportunities.
Implementing inclusive development requires a mindset change in development cooperation: Firstly, disability needs to be a cross-cutting issue in all development projects (disability mainstreaming) to ensure that development programmes are accessible and beneficial to persons with disabilities. Secondly, tailor-made projects are necessary that put the empowerment of persons with disabilities centre stage, as this in turn enables persons with disabilities to catch up, and benefit from mainstream development cooperation on an equal basis with others.
