Zero Project Social Indicators - Special Evaluation for DPI

Launched by the Essl Foundation, the Zero Project implements a survey on various themes of the UNCRPD each year.

Since the inception of the Zero Project initiative in 2012, more than 100 Member National Assemblies of DPI have made a contribution each year consistently. In February 2017, on the theme of employment, the questionnaire received responses from 121 countries which included DPI members from as many as 114 countries.

Recognising this contribution, Zero Project has for the first time ever for any organization, prepared a 'Special Evaluation Report on Social Indicators for DPI'. These social indicators help in measuring the implementation of UNCRPD and in analyzing the data received from various countries across the globe.
