Your story will contribute to the elaboration of an analytical report

Through this collection of empowering stories of persons with disabilities, UNESCO aims to prepare an analytical report on the key enabling factors and facilitators in order to encourage governments, UN agencies, civil society organizations, academic institutions and the private sector, to initiate new collaborations, take new measures and embrace the perspectives and needs of persons with disabilities in their policies and initiatives.
