Abstract
"There are approximately 90 million disabled people in India. Concerted action, in both policy and practice, is needed to go beyond welfarism and ensure that these people can participate in and benefit from mainstream rural development programmes. This paper explores how livelihoods-based approaches can improve access by the disabled to resources and entitlements."
