Innovative Policies

Innovative Policies have achieved identifiable improvements on the ground, and have demonstrated a positive dynamic of change that can be easily replicated in many countries to advance the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CPRD). Like all innovation, some policies may be incomplete or dependent on other developments to maximize their impact. Some policies, no matter how positive, may also contain elements of old thinking.
