Slide presentation from the webinar held by socialprotection.org and organised by Development Pathways on 25 January 2018. In her first speech in her new role as the United Kingdom's Secretary of State for International Development, Penny Mordaunt said that millions of pounds are lost every year because persons with disabilities in developing countries do not have the support that they need to access employment. Considering this, Development Pathways organised this webinar to discuss the evidence on the role of social protection in the economic empowerment of persons with disabilities.

Panellists:

Stephen Kidd, Development Pathways

Morgon Banks, the International Centre for Evidence in Disability, the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
