Speaker and content
Orsolya Bartha, Senior Advisor at International Disability Alliance, will be the speaker. Orsolya will provide an overview of the Sustainable Development Goals at the regional level. She will discuss which regional bodies are involved, what they do and when they meet. She will also talk about how civil society is organized and what kind of outcomes can be expected from the regional platforms.

The objective of this webinar is to stimulate the engagement of organisations of persons with disabilities and the disability movement in the five regions of the world supporting regional sustainable development, as identified by the United Nations (UN). These UN regions are the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), Economic Commission for Latin America (ECLAC), United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (UNESCWA).

This webinar is the first of a series of webinars aiming to discuss the regional coordination mechanisms for persons with disabilities and their participation at the Regional Sustainable Development Forums. The webinars is part of the International Disability (IDA) and Department for International Development (DFID) Catalyst programme. For more information about the programme, click on the following link: EDF link to EDF Catalyst Programme.

EDF invites organisations of persons with disabilities (DPOs/OPDs) as well as the disability movement, other stakeholders and members of the public interested by this topic to join us.

The webinar will provide International Sign language interpretation and real-time captioning. The webinar will be recorded and shared later for those who cannot join.
