Municipal actors in Indonesia harness participatory data on disability for inclusive policies. The data on disability available from official sources is scarce and often outdated to be effective in planning and policy making. In fact, no universal database regarding persons with disabilities exists in Indonesia, with figures varying across ministries and agencies. In addition, such data is often aggregated at the national level, making it difficult for the municipal policymakers to make use of it for local policy design.

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.

An exploratory look at public sector innovation in GCC countries

Research into individual innovation cases allows for comparisons and generalisations to be made. In 2011, NESTA in the United Kingdom piloted a survey attempting to identify the most important sources of innovation in the national public sector, targeting members of the National Health Service (NHS) and local government organisations. A similar approach was taken by the EU Innobarometer in 2010 and when the two surveys are compared, a broadly similar distribution of innovation sources was revealed. Through the analysis of individual innovation cases, patterns were identified.
