Présentation
The ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2010 has provided a good momentum in Ethiopia to foster its implementation among national stakeholders, who previously advocated for the ratification of the Convention and who have been involved recently in the preparation of a National Plan of Action of Persons with Disabilities (2012-2021). As the result of consultations between the One UN (RCO) office, ILO and OHCHR in the context of the UNCT Governance and Human Rights Technical Working Group, as well as, current partnerships with national institutions working on the protection and the promotion of the rights of persons with disabilities, the Programme proposal intends to address institutional gaps and negative social environments limiting the access of persons with disabilities to the life of their community. Three categories of national institutions have accepted to join efforts with the One UN/RCO office, ILO and OHCHR in the context of the UNPPRPD ; the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, the Ethiopian Human Rights Commission, the Ethiopian Institution of the Ombudsman and three Disabled Persons Organizations under the leadership of the Ethiopian Federation of National Associations of Persons with Disabilities. The ILO, OHCHR and One UN/RCO office proposed Programme takes hold of this positive context of inter-institutional collaboration in Ethiopia, and suggests two main areas of intervention ; (i) improve knowledge and technical capacity of authorities across the country on delivering better services to persons with disabilities and (ii) fight social discrimination against persons with disabilities through awareness raising activities by national stakeholders.
