The “Including Disability in Development Cooperation” conference will take place at the Farnesina on 18 November 2015, organised jointly by the Directorate General for Development Cooperation and the Italian Disability and Development Network. The conference will be opened by the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Mario Giro, and is intended for the representatives of all the institutions and civil society bodies working to include the disability dimension in development programmes and policies.
The aim is to provide an opportunity to work jointly and exchange practices where appropriate, and to underscore the added value provided by cooperation agencies, institutions, non-governmental organisations and Organisations for People with Disabilities (OPDs)
Participants will include the UN Department for Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) and EUROPEAID, numerous European cooperation agencies and the principal OPDs and NGOs working in this field.
