Realising the global commitment to Leave No One Behind

Ensuring that persons with disabilities and other marginalised groups are included in development cooperation

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which revolves around a fundamental principle of "leave no one behind" was adopted by 193 Member States in 2015. Although the principle is referred to often, in practice a lack of binding strategies and measures remain to effectively leave no one behind.

The International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC) warmly invites you to its one-day 2019 General Assembly workshop “Realising the global commitment to Leaving No One Behind” which focuses on ensuring that persons with disabilities and other marginalised groups are included in development cooperation. Co-hosted by CBM Germany, the workshop will take place on Thursday 9 May 2019 from 09:00 to 17:00 at Holiday Inn Berlin City-West, Rohrdamm 80, 13629 Berlin, Germany.

With representatives from governments, academia and civil society, we will reflect on how to meet this challenge and implement the principle of leave no one behind in development cooperation. Group discussions will focus on health, education, employment and global partnership. Together, we will develop concrete recommendations to reach the most marginalised people with and without disabilities and to ensure inclusive and sustainable development. We will share the recommendations with the German Government and representatives of the German Parliament the day after the workshop. This is a stepping stone to disseminate these key messages further in local, regional, national and international fora and to turn words into action.

Join us to exchange new ideas with international guests, develop partnerships, share experiences and gather new ideas.
