Description: The project United Nations Partnership to Promote the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in Mozambique was launched in October 2012 to advance CRPD implementation through a multipronged strategy involving both right holders and duty bearers. A key objective of the initiative was enhancing the capacity of organizations of persons with disabilities to engage in advocacy and policy dialogue. Another key goal was the development of more robust data collection systems to become the foundation for the effective design, implementation and monitoring of disability rights programmes. Recognizing the specific circumstances of the country’s estimated 20,000 landmine survivors, an additional component was included in the project that focused on supporting the development of a National Action Plan on Victims Assistance.
