2022 Global Disability Summit
The Global Disability Summit (GDS) is taking place on 16-17 February, 2022.
This year, the GDS will be mainly online and it is hosted by the Government of Norway, the Government of Ghana and the International Disability Alliance (IDA).
Why is it important?
The Summit is important because Governments and Funders make commitments about their work on disability inclusive development.
This means that they commit to include disability issues when making plans to address poverty, discrimination and injustice in their countries.
We must make sure the voices of persons with intellectual disabilities and their families are included during the GDS.
