UNESCO Successfully Implements the First Phase of the Project "Social Inclusion of People Living with Disabilities in Indonesia"

The Government of Indonesia ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) in October 2011 creating a momentum in the advancement of the rights of persons with disability. UNESCO Office Jakarta’s project ‘Social Inclusion of People Living with Disabilities in Indonesia’ is part of a collaborative UN effort supported by the United Nations Partnership for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities that aims to promote dissemination and implementation of the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD).

Through the implementation of the programme, UNESCO assisted the Government of Indonesia and Disabled People Organizations (DPOs) in reinforcing national institutions and mechanisms for better and stronger coordination in raising awareness and promoting disability rights that will enable sustainable government interventions and budget allocations for disability programmes. In addition to that, UNESCO has initiated a “Nework of Inclusive Cities” to support disability rights at regional and local level.
