CRPD to hold regional consultations on the right of persons with disabilities to live independently and being included in the community
The Committee will hold online regional consultations with persons with disabilities and their representative organizations: “From isolation, invisibility and segregation into inclusion of persons with disabilities in the community”
These consultations are a first step in the process to develop guidance on the right of persons with disabilities to live independently and being included in the community (article 19), and ensure that deinstitutionalization of persons with disabilities, adheres to the CRPD, including in the context of emergencies, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please check the Informative note for stakeholders below for the dates and modalities of these regional consultations.
