While the publication provides a comprehensive overview and analysis of the factors linking poverty and disability, the chapter, ‘lifelong learning in education, training and skills development’ considers the lifelong learning that people with disabilities in developing countries need to escape poverty. These include both competencies and qualifications. People with disabilities require skills to reach their potential. This potential refers to economic potential (earning a living) as well as social potential (contributing to society). Skills can be acquired in various ways through non-formal and formal channels and in a variety of settings. A number of case studies are provided.
