Abstract

To achieve its target of becoming a high income country in 2020, Malaysia has taken an initiative to adopt The Incheon Strategy to Make the Right Real for PWDs in Asia and the Pacific which comprises 10 goals, 27 targets and 62 indicators to address the issues of social justice and social rights regardless of race, religion and disabilities. In this paper, we discuss the plan and policies put in place in order for the government to develop an ecosystem based on the right of PWDs and community-based ecosystem that will support social mobility for PWDs. Based on the existing infrastructures provided insofar by the government, there is still plenty of room for improvement, especially in the early intervention in the context of social skills development and entrepreneurship programs for the PWDs.
