Disability Strategies and Action Plans by Country/Area

National disability strategies and action plans can play an important role in coordinating and guiding the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with disabilities (CRPD) by highlighting areas which will be prioritized at the national level. Disability strategies and action plans typically present measures and milestones which a country intends to reach by the end of the period covered by the strategy/plan. They can also make a significant contribution towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the pledge of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that no one will be left behind.
