The Disability Promotion & Advocacy Association in Vanuatu has released a report on the government’s proposed National Sustainable Development Plan.
The Plan represents an excellent chance for people with disabilities and other vulnerable groups to have inclusion placed at the forefront of the national agenda. The Plan can be seen as a framework to support the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), ratified in 2008.
In general, the Association is happy with the proposed Plan, but suggests some improvements in order to align better with the CRPD. To find out more, visit: http://www.dpavanuatu.org/
