Global Conference on Assistance to Victims of Anti-Personnel Mines and Other Explosive Remnants of War, and Disability Rights
10-12 September, InterContinental Amman
Sponsored by the European Union, Fostering Partnerships will provide national disability rights and victim assistance experts, decision makers and persons with disabilities including mine survivors, with opportunities to further explore challenges and good practices in aligning victim assistance efforts with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Who should plan to attend?
All States, relevant international and non-governmental organisations working to support the aims of the Convention, and those working in wider contexts of disability rights, labour, health and education are invited to attend Fostering Partnerships as they all play a role in achieving the full and effective participation of women, girls, boys and men living with a disability on an equal basis with others in their societies.
How can delegations register?
Registration is by invitation only. If you believe your State or organisation could provide valuable input to the discussions or gain valuable knowledge from attending, please contact the Implementation Support Unit at isu(at)apminebanconvention.org.
