‘Adolescence, Disability and Gender Inequalities: Understanding the Policy Implications of New Research Findings for LMICs’
On 14th June 08:15 – 09:30 in Conference Room 7 at UNHQ.
The session will bring together new research on the intersections between adolescence, disability and gender inequalities (by the Leonard Cheshire; the ODI hosted Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence (GAGE) longitudinal research programme), global programme implementers and policy influencers (UNICEF), and benefit from discussion regarding working with youth with disabilities (ADD) to see how this links with the development of national policies and plans to ensuring they deliver on the SDG promise to leave no one behind.
