The International Disability Alliance (IDA) hosted a conference to deepen dialogue between national, regional and global organisations of persons with disabilities (DPOs) in Nairobi, Kenya between 6 – 8 March 2014. The conference, titled “The post-2015 development agenda and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD) in Africa”, aimed to promote inclusive development in the future global development framework. At the end of the three-day event over 100 participants—from 13 African DPOs and cross-regional representatives from North and Latin America, Europe, Australia and Asia—adopted the Nairobi Declaration in the presence of high-level governmental representatives and UN agencies. The Declaration contains the priorities of the African continent within the context of the post-2015 development agenda and the challenges regarding the implementation of the UN CRPD.

The conference was organised by IDA in cooperation with the International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC), and funded by the UN Partnership to Promote the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN PRPD), UNICEF, the Swedish International Development Agency and CBM.
