Title of paper: Inclusive, Safe, Resilient and Sustainable Societies and Persons with Disabilities

In January 2018, the Stakeholder Group of Persons with Disabilities convened an open, transparent, accessible and inclusive call to initiate the establishment of a working group to draft the sectoral position paper. An invitation was sent out to the International Disability Alliance (IDA) and International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC) listservs requesting members to share any information/research/materials/publications on the theme and Goals under review.

The working group agreed on and approved several steps outlined in the table below. As a start, the working group identified researched material, key messages, and titles for the submission. Initial drafts were discussed by the entire working group and refined in line with relevant discussions. After the first draft was agreed by the entire working group, a wide consultation was conducted with all the members of the Stakeholder Group of Persons with Disabilities. Comments received were addressed and incorporated, and subsequently, the second draft was prepared for additional minor comments. At the end of the second consultation, the working group finalized the document for submission.
