Dear colleagues from our regional exchange.
In light of the SDGs- the EC is conducting a public consultation on the EU Consensus on Development. The original document is from 2005 and paid no attention to persons with disabilities. The consultation is open till August 12th
It would be great if the EU received responses from DPOs around the world- this is our chance to strongly enhance the EUs approach to disability inclusive development.
It would be great if you could circulate this- EDF should also respond to this, but we have not worked on it yet- let me know if you would like to see EDF position to inform yours-
