Sport and disability

This section provides a summary of current thinking on the adaptation of physical activity, sport and recreation opportunities to ensure participation of individuals with a disability from development contexts.

Today, the idea of people with a disability being able to participate in sport and physical activity is not so uncommon. In many countries, opportunities exist from the grassroots to elite levels for people with a disability to showcase their abilities in sport and physical activity.

Whilst there has been progressive and positive change in quality of life for people with disabilities in many developed countries, often this progress is not reflected in developing countries.
