  • Call for articles - including persons with disabilities in sport


    Dear readers,
    Thanks to all who have sent articles for our call on including persons with disabilities in sport. Please keep them coming - the deadline is 13 November.

    We would also like to highlight the results of a global survey that we conducted with the Japan Sport Council. The survey identified key challenges and opportunities for actors using sport for development. The findings will influence the content of a guidebook which aims to build capacity in the sport sector and beyond.

    Lastly, we have created a new section on the website on sport and refugees, in collaboration with the UNHCR, featuring news, tools and resources - check it out!

    Happy reading,

    The sportanddev team
