6 December 2017
Poster of the event

EDF, CBM International and Handicap International invite you to a roundtable discussion to advance on commitments to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD) and the Charter on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action. You will also hear first-hand experiences from organisations of persons with disabilities and NGOs in emergency contexts, and discuss collective next steps at political and operational level, especially from a European perspective.

The event will take place on 6 December 2017 at 18.00-19.30 at the European Parliament in Brussels (room: JAN 4Q2), followed by a cocktail reception. The event is organised at the sidelines of the 4th European Parliament of Persons with Disabilities which is organised earlier on the same day by EDF and the European Parliament. It is also taking place in the context of the European Disability and Development Week organised by the International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC).
