SHORT DESCRIPTION

To promote the rights of persons with disabilities in Indonesia, UNESCO Jakarta Office has been working with the Network of Mayors for Inclusive Cities that provides a platform for innovative, participatory, and inclusive policymaking among its members. Established by UNESCO in the framework of the UN Partnership to Promote the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNPRPD) in Indonesia, the Network and its activities are managed by the Indonesian Association of City Governments (APEKSI). 
UNESCO works closely with persons with disabilities and their organizations to develop and apply innovative tools for policymakers: 
- Disability-Inclusive City Profile of Solo and Participatory Data Collection and Mapping Tool to develop a similar profile for other cities, produced in collaboration with Kota Kita Foundation. A City Profile uses the current, fit-for-purpose data collected through participatory methodologies to represent disability issues through maps and other graphics. This innovative approach addresses existing data gaps at the municipal level and helps policymakers visualize the challenges that the citizens with disabilities face on a daily basis. 
- Assessment Tool for Disability Inclusion in the Cities to help cities measure and monitor progress made towards the fulfillment of international and domestic commitments towards the rights of persons with disabilities.
