Bridging the Gap Annual event 2020-Side event at COSP13
The side event proposes a debate on the contribution of the EU-funded project Bridging the Gap to the implementation of the SDGs, gathering around the same roundtable high-level representatives from the United Nations, the participating countries and organisations of persons with disabilities. Based on a dynamic and participatory format, the event will also introduce OHCHR’s policy guidelines on human rights indicators for CRPD-oriented SDGs, and how they can contribute to making the 2030 Agenda disability-inclusive. In addition, concrete results of support to inclusive policies and capacity-building initiatives will be presented, with particular attention to the empowerment of women with disabilities.
This multi-stakeholder event is sponsored by Spain and co-sponsored by the European Union, Austria, Finland, Italy, OHCHR, the International Disability and Development Consortium and the European Disability Forum.
