The CRPD significantly altered the environment, the expectations and the participation of persons with disabilities in the creation of the 2030 Agenda, and its 17 Sustinable Development Goals, a universal commitment by all UN Member States. 

The 2030 Agenda and CRPD should be used together: in order to implement sustainable development in any given country, it will also need to implement the CRPD. Through the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, more resources and data will be available for implementation of the CRPD. It is up to DPOs and their partners, including governments, to provide this connection and synergy between the two instruments for the benefit of the rights of persons with disabilities.
