Participatory Data for Disability Inclusive Cities

Participatory Data for Disability Inclusive Cities

Right to have Personal Health Budgets

Personal health budgets were introduced in England in 2014 (firstly as a pilot scheme) to engage with users of the National Health Service, with long-term conditions and disabilities, and give them greater control, over the healthcare they receive. These personal health budgets seek to place the user at the centre of decision-making and thus allow them to tailor resource allocation to their needs. The user and their healthcare team create a care plan stating their needs, the amount of resources available and their healthcare goals.

The quality of group childcare settings used by 3-4 year old children in Sure Start Local Programme areas and the relationship with child outcomes

The UK’s Sure Start is set to tackle the cycle of social exclusion and child poverty through improved childcare, early education, health and family support. The programme utilises panel data rather than aggregate cross-sectional data in order to track the progress of the participating children. Doing so enables area-based comparisons of the rates of progress of child development over the years, resulting in the identification of disadvantaged areas and the services in need.

Social Inclusion through Participation: the Case of the Participatory Budget in São Paulo

Participatory budgeting implemented from 2001 to 2004 in São Paulo, Brazil, is an example of transformative participation. The exercise is a telling in two regards. First, by relying on an affirmative action methodology, it was institutionally designed to encourage and sustain, throughout the entire cycle, the participation of historically disadvantaged groups or segments of the population: Afro-Brazilians, senior citizens, children and adolescents, youth, the LGBT community, women, indigenous groups, the homeless and people with disabilities.

EFA global monitoring report

An example of early-stage interventions comes from Bangladesh, where the importance of targeting children in remote and rural areas in a proactive manner has been understood. A situational analysis identified ten different categories of exclusion-prone children. Based on these findings, the country developed an Action Plan that runs in addition to the traditional educational programs but seeks to enhance the inclusion of such vulnerable populations.

Accounting for diversity: policy design and Māori development in Aotearoa New Zealand

In New Zealand, efforts are being made to tailor policies and associated services to the needs of Māori. This has been done through devolution and decentralization of service delivery to iwi and Māori organisations; the participation of Māori themselves in service delivery and governance; strengthened outreach and communication; and incorporation of Māori culture, philosophy (kaupapa), and language into policy design and delivery. Such a course of action has brought about notable success.
