With less than eight years to reach the target year for the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, GDS22 will seek to promote actions to increase inclusiveness and equality in line with the principle of leaving no one behind and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). We expect the Summit to lead to concrete political commitments that will bring about genuine change for persons with disabilities, tackle inequalities, and foster inclusive development, and humanitarian action, guided by a human-rights approach.
The suggested commitments were developed in consultation with the Global Action on Disability Network, disability experts including Organisations of Persons with Disabilities (OPDs), and are meant to inform, inspire and incentivize ambitious commitments contributing to a successful GDS. The suggested commitments range from overarching commitments to specific thematic commitments. The menu is comprehensive, but all important matters are not covered in the menu. Each commitment is accompanied by an explanatory text of proposed actions. Please note that you do not have to carry out all suggested activities/actions.
Stakeholders are invited to register commitments by selecting from the menu. If what you wish to commit to is not adequately reflected in the menu, you may register your own commitment(s) by choosing “other” and filling in the form. It is also possible to update commitments made in 2018 by selecting “Update Existing Commitment”.
You can access the Menu of Commitments here: https://idata.tools/survey/gds22commitments
The deadline for submission is January 26 2022.

Thank you for contributing with concrete political commitments that will bring about lasting change for persons with disabilities through joint action and that will promote equality.
