In this event we discussed why localisation is such a powerful tool for breaking down accessibility barriers and creating more inclusive societies. It will highlight the critical role of local and regional governments and OPDs in ensuring that accessibility is a priority and that the rights of persons with disabilities are respected, promoted, and realised. This event is co-organised with a range of partners and will bring together UCLG, UN-Habitat, and IDA, to present and discuss key recommendations for States Parties to accelerate implementation of accessibility together with localisation efforts of the global agendas.
