Project Summary

NCD is interested in examining and understanding the responsibilities of U.S. - funded overseas facilities and programs, both public and private. NCD is seeking applicants to research and develop an NCD report with the following three components: 1) An analysis/examination of international law, to determine how US-funded international development organizations will be required to comply with Article 32 of the Convention in those countries which have ratified the CRPD; and 2) an empirical follow-up to NCD’s 2003 report on how USAID is implementing its own disability policy overseas and its impact thus far, along with its compliance with Sections 501, 503, and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act in its overseas operations. The report should review whether these protections against discrimination are being implemented by government employees and contractors working abroad, and will examine whether U.S.-funded programs are being operated in a manner that is accessible to and inclusive of people with disabilities; and 3) evaluate progress on NCD’s recommendations regarding the accessibility of US embassies and missions, as well as Department of Defense (DoD) funded programs and facilities.

This report would examine the accessibility of:
  • New investments in physical infrastructure, including US military construction programs and re-building of post-conflict societies
  • Disaster Relief
  • Economic development
  • The accessibility of programs in democracy and governance
  • Cultural exchanges
  • US embassies and missions

These areas should be examined in the context of U.S.-based international development organizations in both the public and private sectors; USAID’s overseas developmentprograms; the State Department, including U.S. embassies and missions; as well as Department of Defense (DoD) funded construction programs and facilities.
