Poverty reduction strategy (PRS) processes have often failed to address the needs and interests of persons with disabilities. Without their inclusion, however, developmental strategies are unlikely to meet their goals. Three projects in Cambodia, Tanzania and Vietnam have fostered participation of persons with disabilities and their organisations in the PRS of their respective countries. This study examines the inclusive dimension of PRS processes and reviews the relationship between poverty and disability. It then describes the three projects and analyses their successes and challenges. While all projects have shown good results in terms of capacity development, few real impacts could be achieved regarding the implementation of PRSPs on a larger scale. © 2009 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
