In the first year of Agenda 2030, and as part of its 2016 General Assembly, the International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC) organised a workshop on “Leaving No One Behind, Turning Goals into Actions.”
The purpose of the IDDC Workshop was to identify ways of working for IDDC in response to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework to ensure that all persons with disabilities benefit from the SDGs. During the IDDC Workshop, the 96 participants divided into three parallel sessions, discussing the following topics: A) Data/Monitoring of the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda; B) National Implementation Plans; C) Leave No One Behind: What does it mean for the most discriminated groups? In plenary, as the end of the IDDC Workshop, each group proposed recommendations based on their discussions.
These recommendations are mainly directed internally towards IDDC Members and Task Groups, and are aimed to inform the network’s actions. However, other civil society, governments and international organisations are encouraged to use these recommendations to inform their interpretation and practice of SDG implementation.
