The United Nations Partnership on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNPRPD) is a unique collaborative effort that brings together UN entities, governments, disabled people’s organizations and the broader civil society to advance the human rights of persons with disabilities around the world.
The UN entities participating in the UNPRPD are the International Labour Organization (ILO), the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), the United Nations Department for Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (UNESCO), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women), the World Health Organization (WHO). The UNDP Inclusive Political Processes Team serves as the Technical Secretariat for the Partnership. The UNPRPD also works closely with multiple civil society organizations including the International Disability Alliance (IDA) and the International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC).
The UNPRPD is supported by the UNPRPD Fund, a Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF) established to mobilize resources for the Partnership. The UNPRPD MPTF is administered by the UNDP Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) and builds on the experience developed by the MPTF Office in managing multiple Multi-Partner Trust Funds and joint programmes around the world.
Since 2012, the UNPRPD has funded over 50country level joint UN programmes worldwide to support CRPD implementation as well as 5 regional initiatives to strengthen the voices of persons with disabilities, and 8 global initiatives to develop strategic resources on the rights of persons with disabilities.
In 2020, UNPRPD mobilized to respond to the global COVID-19 pandemic and the disproportionate effect this was having on persons with disabilities by developing a $2 million USD global program on COVID-19 response and recovery efforts. This type of large-scale program was a first for UNPRPD in terms of size and scale as well as the speed with which UNPRPD responded to the evolving context. The program leveraged the experiences of nine UN entities, OPDs, broader civil society, as well as 44 UN Country Teams, resulting in one of the most complex programs that UNPRPD has funded.
