The overarching principles of ADA are:

  • promoting basic rights and freedoms. ADA is an interlocking technical agency that provides policy-level expertise and good practice to support policy formulation, programming and
    implementation processes.
  • The organisation catalyses the disability programming process by developing tools to achieve objectives of policy and legislation related to disability. It brings together different
    governments, political structures, networks and organisations thus building consensus and cohesion on complex decision-making processes.
  • ADA is a reservoir of information and best practices related to all aspects of disability work (including research / gathering of evidence, formulation of sectoral disability objectives/ output /
    indicators, and strengthening of advocacy / lobbying ability of DPOs and other civil society organisations).
