Finding Research, Reports, Papers, Statistics at We Can Do
I have now created a new page for the top navigation bar entitled “Research, Reports, Papers, Statistics“. That page can point you to We Can Do posts that present academic papers written by authors from aroudn the world, or point to resources around the web that can help you find more reports, research, academic papers, and sources of statistics on your own.
These resources can help researchers find what information is already available about people with disabilities in developing countries. Some of these resources may also be helpful to disabled people’s organizations (DPOs) and grassroots advocates who are trying to raise funding for important projects or programs in their countries. Funding sources often want to know how many people with disabilities are in your country or region and what other services are already available to them before deciding whether to fund projects meant to serve this population. It can also be helpful to use documented sources to back up your assertations about the challenges that confront disabled people in your country and why existing resources and services may not be adequate to meet their needs.
Some of research, reports, and papers has been published in peer reviewed publications; or have been presented at international conferences; or they come from highly reputable sources such as the World Bank or the International Labour Organization. Some of the material listed does not any of the above criteria. Papers published at We Can Do usually indicate at the bottom whether it has been previously published or presented elsewhere. Researchers, students, and DPOs will want to use their own judgment about which reports or papers are appropriate sources of information for their own particular needs.
