CRPD and SDG infographic

On 18 February 2016 CBM will launch an infographic linking Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) at a conference organised by the International Centre for Evidence in Disability (ICED) at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

The infographic outlines the important relationship between the SDG Goals and the CRPD and highlights that SDG implementation must be underpinned by ensuring the human rights of all people with disabilities. 

The infographic can be downloaded here as an A4 leaflet, or poster and the accessible word format is here. For those who wish to use the resource, the artwork for a pop up bannerA4 leaflet and promotional postcard can be downloaded here. We encourage everyone to use and share this resource.

I’d like to see people making the links between the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs are for 15 years, the UN CRPD is for life! Let’s make sure human rights underscore the implementation of the SDGs at a national level!
