MONITORING MANUAL AND MENU FOR CBR AND OTHER COMMUNITY-BASED DISABILITY INCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS
Community-Based Rehabilitation (CBR) is a valued community development approach but there is a lack of evidence of its efficacy (World Report on Disability 2011; and more recently confirmed in the Global Disability Action Plan 2014). Monitoring is a first step to build the evidence base and assist decision-making.
The Centre for Disability Research and Policy at the University of Sydney, in collaboration with CBR stakeholders from the Asia Pacific region, has produced a monitoring manual and menu (MM&M) for CBR and other community-based disability inclusive development programs.
The MM&M offers these programs guidance to plan and implement locally controlled monitoring activities that empower stakeholders with information – including but not limited to people with disabilities, their families and communities.
The MM&M is freely available for testing or use, and can be downloaded here:
The MM&M was resourced principally by the University of Sydney. Key resources were also provided by Australian Aid whose ALA Fellowship funding enabled CBR stakeholders to inform and shape the design of the Menu; and CBM International which provided crucial funding for work on the Manual.
