The conference aims to launch the EUROMED Regional Agenda on the Socio-Economic Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in the Mediterranean region. Building on the results of the preliminary assessment conducted in Barcelona in January 2022, the conference will analyze and acknowledge the current status of social and economic inclusion and define joint actions towards implementing the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The Conference will focus as well on specific topics, such as disability and employment, social protection, gender equality and emerging topics.
The Conference targets high-level representatives from UfM member states, Organizations of persons with disability (OPDs), civil society, and institutional partners to collectively address the crucial issues surrounding the socio-economic inclusion of persons with disabilities in the Mediterranean region. Together, it will be possible to pave the way for a more inclusive and equitable future.
