The consulation is now closed. The online consultation was organized by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) and UNICEF, as part of the preparatory process for the UN High-level Meeting on Disability and Development (HLMDD) which will take place on 23 September this year. The UN High Level Meeting on disability and development aims to advance a disability-inclusive development agenda towards 2015 and beyond and is expected to produce an action-oriented outcome document. The online consultation covered the questionnaire developed to guide the consultations for the HLMDD.
Thank you for your interest in the online consultation to help with preparation of the HLMDD outcome document for the High-level Meeting on Disability and Development (HLMDD). The consultation took place over the period of one month, between 8 March and 5 April, 2013. Both UN DESA and UNICEF have been pleased and impressed with the discussion and many useful insights offered from around the world. Over 400 posts were received from over 60 countries. Full details of participation rates will be shared here next week. Over the coming weeks the moderators will review all contributions and synthesize them into a final report. When completed, the report will be available on this website, and will be carried forward to the HLMDD itself. Once again, thank you for your interest and your participation.
