The proposing organization(s) will be solely responsible for logistics and for the financial costs of the event. Once side-events have been finalized, we will post these on the website of the Global Disability Summit. 

The International Disability Alliance (IDA), the Government of Norway, and the Government of Ghana will host the second Global Disability Summit (GDS22) on 16 and 17 February 2022. The Summit will be mainly virtual.

The Summit will mobilize efforts for the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), the principle of ‘Leave No One Behind’ (LNOB), and building back better and more inclusive with regards to Covid-19.

The themes for the GDS2022 are:
1. Capacity-strengthening of organisations of persons with disabilities in the Global South
2. Inclusive Education
3. Inclusive Health
4. Inclusive Employment and Livelihoods
5. Inclusion in situations of crises and conflict, including a focus on climate change

Gender is a cross-cutting theme.
