Research question

The research team will develop a user-friendly, web-based platform for evidence-informed decision making on disability-inclusive development in low- and middle-income countries. The platform will provide a database of existing impact evaluations and evidence syntheses related to disability and will provide guidance aimed at policymakers.

Research design

The portal will be developed based on CEDIL’s evidence gap map on disability. The process will include extensive consultation with relevant policymakers and programme planners to ensure the portal is relevant to their needs.
