Doha International Conference on Disability and Development 2019

participants listening the speaker

The Doha International Conference on Disability and Development will be held on December 7-8 2019, under the guidance and patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Founder of Qatar Foundation for Social Work and its affiliated civil society centers. 

The theme of the conference is “Harnessing the Power of Sustainable Development to Advance the Rights of Persons with Disabilities”. The key visionary item on the agenda of the conference is about how to rationalize, consolidate, contextualize, and streamline the nexus between the UNSDGs and the UNCRPDs based on the co-production of social policy between civil society and governments to achieve meaningful structural change to achieve inclusive equality. By and large, this endeavor is more than likely to ignite a visionary 21st century approach that will positively impact 1.5 billion persons with disabilities worldwide.

The conference will bring together the collective authentic voice of persons with disabilities, important actors in the UN system and regional systems responsible for human rights, sustainable development and development assistance, and innovative practice from around the world. Furthermore, it would be of intrinsic interest to a range of other international community actors involved in sustainable development.
