Call for Expression of Interest: Strategic Mapping of UNESCO’s work on Disability Inclusion and Rights

UNESCO has deployed and leveraged various functions to deliver its work on disability rights and inclusion, which provides solid grounds for interventions at both the Headquarters and at the country levels. These functions include: Standard-Setting; Laboratory of Ideas; Clearing House; Capacity-building; and Catalyst for international cooperation. In 2021, UNESCO seeks to further structure its programmes and interventions on disability issues in a strategic manner, in order to consolidate impact, upscale good practices and extend geographic coverage, ensure quality, and invest on the unique potential and contributions of the Organisation. The strategic mapping should be the first step towards such a strategic programming, by providing (i) an analytical mapping and typology of the existing frameworks and programmes; and (ii) a strategic analysis of UNESCO’s potential, added values, and niche areas that can shape a UNESCO Global Disability Strategy in the medium term.  

Consultancy firms specialized in strategic planning, International Organizations of persons with disabilities, and Organizations specialized in social inclusion are encouraged to apply, before the 14 September 2021, 12 midnight Paris time. The Call for Expression of Interest is launched by the UNESCO’s Intersectoral Task Team on Disability Rights and Inclusion, under the leadership and coordination of Assistant Director-General for Social and Human Sciences.
