About

STRENGTHENING THE DISABILITY RIGHTS DIMENSION OF THE POST-2015 DEVELOPMENT FRAMEWORK BY SUPPORTING THE MEANINGFUL ENGAGEMENT OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

The proposed programme promotes the full inclusion of persons with disabilities in the current negotiation process of the post-MDG framework as a way to ensure that the new framework for international co-operation which will succeed the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) at the end of 2015 will effectively include the rights of persons with disabilities.

To achieve this, the following specific objectives are set:

  • To increase the capacity of national and global organizations of persons with disabilities (DPOs) representative of the disability community to be able to effectively influence the post-MDG negotiation process.
  • To raise awareness among key staff in UN entities, both at headquarters and country level, on the need to include the rights of persons with disabilities in the post-MDG framework and foster partnerships among DPOs and UN entities during all stages of this process both at headquarter level and at country level.
  • To ensure through this partnership approach that all relevant documents that will influence the MDG Summit outcome document and the outcome document itself are inclusive of the rights of persons with disabilities and that the High Level Meeting on Disability and Development outcome document includes a detailed section on the post-MDG framework.

The activities that will lead up to the September 2013 MDG Summit define the scope of this programme. Efforts will clearly need to continue beyond that point; however, the process that will take place after the September 2013 MDG Summit is still unclear and therefore the advocacy activities will need to be planned once this process is better known. A focus of activities in the second phase should be around creating the conditions to ensure accountability for the implementation of post-2015 commitments.
