High-level Meeting on Disability and Development
On 23 September 2013 the General Assembly will hold a High-level Meeting on Disability and Development, with the overarching theme “The way forward: a disability inclusive development agenda towards 2015 and beyond”, at United Nations Headquarters in New York. The Meeting will present a historic opportunity to translate the international commitment to disability-inclusive society and development into concrete action and changes on the ground, and to mainstream disability in the global agenda towards a post -2015 development framework.
As determined by General Assembly Resolution 66/124, the High-level Meeting will result in a concise, action‑oriented outcome document in support of the aims of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilitiesand the realization of the Millennium Development Goals and other internationally agreed development goals for persons with disabilities.
The present form is intended to encourage and guide inputs from various forms of consultations and stakeholders to contribute to the outcome document of the High-level Meeting. Inputs may be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
