Date: 14 – 17 February 2022.
The Global Disability Summit (GDS) is an important global event to promote disability rights and disability in development. It offers a concrete mechanism for collecting new, ambitious, and widespread commitments which are critical to achieving real change for persons with disabilities.
The first Global Disability held in 2018 (GDS18) was a historic event for disability inclusion, co-hosted by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the Government of Kenya, and the International Disability Alliance (IDA). The GDS18 inspired unprecedented engagement and generated commitments to action that will help deliver Agenda 2030’s vision to ‘Leave No One Behind’ (LNOB) as well as existing obligations under the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
The GDS provides a great opportunity to make the disability inclusion work of DPOs and NGOs more known, and to intensify the advocacy, and thereby to achieve results that make a difference in the lives of persons with disabilities.
