ABSTRACT

One of the main goals of international development cooperation projects isantipoverty. Disability is closely connected to poverty. Accordingly, the necessityfor the introduction of disability inclusion policies becomes more emphasized inthe development cooperation projects. In this context, the problems of disabilityshould be addressed seriously as a cross-cutting issue in pursuing Post-2015Millennium Development Goals(MDGs). In particular, Korea is a leading country ofthe third "Asian and Pacific Decade of Disabled Persons" and has the mission toexemplarily put "Incheon Strategy" in practice. In this respect, this study investigates ahistorical background of disability–inclusive development cooperation and summarizes thestatus and implications of disability–inclusive development cooperations being carried outby major advanced donor countries. Additionally, the present situation of disability–inclusive development cooperation in Korea as well as the feasible methods of disability–inclusive projects from KOICA's development and cooperation projects was addressed. Finally, we recommend policies to exemplarily carry out disability–inclusive development.
