Why. So that all individuals are able to enjoy the same dignity and respect. 

How. By strengthening anti-discrimination laws, policies and strategies; enable the full participation and leadership of people with disabilities in all aspects of life; and shift the underlying harmful attitudes, behaviours and norms that limit us all.

  • Policy, legislation and its implementation – new or strengthened CRPD-compliant legislation, policy and long-term action plans – and investment in the resources needed to implement them 
  • Representation and empowerment of persons with disabilities – investment in the full participation of people with disabilities including funding for representative organisations and networks 
  • Stereotypes, Attitudes and Behaviours – strategies to eliminate harmful attitudes and practices
