2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development emphasises disability

“‘Persons with disabilities’ or ‘disability’ are specifically mentioned 11 times in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Disability is referenced explicitly in parts related to education, growth and employment, inequality, accessibility of human settlements, as well as data collection and monitoring of the SDGs.” This is the introduction to Inclusion matters: access and empowerment for people of all abilities in the UN DESA News December featured article with important updates for persons with disabilities.
