Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland is committed to further strengthen mainstreaming of disability rights across its development policy and programme. Finland is doing this by renewing one of its three cross-cutting objectives to become non-discrimination with a specific attention to address discrimination against persons with disabilities.

Timeframe and/or implementation plan 
Finland will ensure the implementation and accountability for this commitment by renewing the guidelines on cross-cutting objectives in collaboration with the organizations of persons with disabilities, and by providing mandatory training for all key MFA staff and other stakeholders responsible for implementing Finnish development cooperation. The timeframe for this commitment is to have the renewed guidelines and training plan in place by spring 2019.
