High-Level Meeting on Disability and Development

Norway's Minister of Children, Equality and Social Inclusion, Inga Marte Thorkildsen, will attend this meeting on disability and development.

The UN General Assembly (UNGA) agreed in resolution A/RES/67/140, of December 2012, to hold a High-Level Meeting on Disability and Development (HLMDD) with the overarching theme, "The way forward: a disability inclusive development agenda towards 2015 and beyond," on 23 September 2013, at UN Headquarters in New York, US. The High Level Meeting on the Realization of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and other internationally agreed development goals for persons with disabilities, to be organized at Heads of State or Government level, is expected to produce an action-oriented outcome document on disability inclusion. The one-day event will comprise a plenary meeting and two consecutive informal round tables, with participation by Member States, observers, UN entities, civil society and the private sector, including persons with disabilities.
