Background: In the framework of the 2020 High-level Political Forum, the event will provide a platform for governments championing disability-inclusive sustainable development. Governments will be able to share the measures that they have and will carry out to ensure that the “leave no one behind” and “reach the furthest behind first” will still be achievable despite all the challenges caused by the pandemic. The event will also feature diverse testimonies from persons with disabilities, in particular underrepresented groups, sharing their experiences and requests with world leaders in order to rebuild a more disability-inclusive future.
