The global community has agreed to work toward 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These are goals for improving the lives of all humans by 2030. Meanwhile, the disability community says that disability-inclusive SDG programs are crucial. Thus, many Deaf, DeafBlind, and disability organizations signed a position paper. They say SDG programs should follow the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). In other words, SDG programs should include people with disabilities in everything.
The position paper explains the history of the SDGs. It also provides recommendations for how to create disability-inclusive SDG programs.
