2022 Global Summit for Youth with Disabilities
The International Disability Alliance, the Government of Norway, and the Government of Ghana will host the second Global Disability Summit on 16 and 17 February 2022 (GDS22). During the global summit, youth with disabilities will share what matters to them, what works and what needs to change. The Global Disability Summits have four main objectives:
- Raise global attention and focus on neglected areas and inclusive sustainable development
- Strengthen the capacity of organisations of persons with disabilities in the Global South and their engagement with governments
- Mobilise targeted and concrete commitments on disability inclusion and inclusive development
- Showcase best practice and evidence from across the world on disability inclusive development, and progress made from the GDS in 2018.
The Summit will mobilize efforts for the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), the principle of ‘Leave No One Behind’ (LNOB and building back better and more inclusive with regards to Covid-19.
