Bridging the Gap II (BtG-II) is an initiative funded by the European Union coordinated by the International and Ibero-American Foundation for Administration and Public Policies (FIIAPP) in partnership with the Spanish Agency for Development Cooperation (AECID), the Austrian Development Agency (ADA), the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (IADC), the European Disability Forum (EDF) and the International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC). The project aims to contribute to the socio-economic inclusion, equality and nondiscrimination of persons with disabilities through more inclusive and accountable institutions and policies. BtG-II supports the mainstreaming of disability in international cooperation and the efforts of five partner countries (Burkina Faso, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Paraguay and Sudan) in planning and implementing inclusive public policies and services. 

In this framework, BtG-II’s organises a webinar-based training cycle to gradually explore different aspects of the inclusion of persons with disability in  development cooperation

The first training session will focus on the topic: “Introduction to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD): principles, content and structure”. The first session will be held in Spanish by Silvia Quan (IDA) on March 19th, followed by the sessions in French and En​glish, both on March 26th, held by Charlotte Axelsson and An-Sofie Leenknecht (EDF) respectively.
