In accordance with the decision by the Ad Hoc Committee (contained in the Report of the Ad Hoc Committee, A/58/118 & Corr.1), the Working Group is to prepare and present a draft a text for basis for negotiation by the Ad Hoc Committee taking into account all contributions submitted to the Ad Hoc Committee in advance of the meetings of the Working Group by States, observers, regional meetings, relevant United Nations bodies, entities and agencies, regional commissions and intergovernmental organizations, as well as civil society including non-governmental organizations, national disability and human rights institutions and independent experts. The decision requested the Secretary-General to provide the Working Group with all relevant documentation, including the report of the second session of the Ad Hoc Committee.

In accordance with the decision of the Ad Hoc Committee, the reports of the sessions of the Ad Hoc Committee, as well as all contributions submitted to the Ad Hoc Committee regarding the convention, have been made available on the website in accessible formats. In addition, a Compilation of Proposals for Elements of a Convention (both in accessible html version and in MS Word file) has been prepared as a reference document for the Working Group.
