COMING UP – Addressing the inclusion of persons with disabilities in humanitarian actions: A European perspective

Posted by: on Nov 25, 2017 | No Comments

Persons with disabilities are among the most marginalized in any crisis-affected community. The EDF, CBM International and HI are organising an event to address this situation.

On the 6th of December, the 4th European Parliament of Persons with Disabilities (EPPD) will bring together hundreds of delegates of representative organisations of persons with disabilities from all over Europe, Members of the European Parliament and high level representatives of EU institutions. This week will also mark the European Disability and Development Week (EDDW).

In this context, the European Disability Forum (EDF), CBM International and Handicap International are organising a roundtable discussion to advance on commitments to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and the Charter on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action.

What can the European Commission and its Member States do for the participation and inclusion of persons with disabilities in humanitarian action? Join us at the event to know more!
