Publications and resources
EBU can now make available this guidance document which sets out to provide practical information to support civil society in participating in the review process by submitting an Alternative Report in relation to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD).
Monitoring the proper implementation of the UNCRPD is essential to enhance blind and partially sighted citizens’ social inclusion in society. National visual impairment organisations have a key role to play in the matter. We do hope these guidelines will support you in defining your own UNCRPD alternative reporting process and contribute to each national disability council’s work. In particular, this publication is expected to help your organisation prioritise the work and plan the necessary resources for the full completion of the process. When going through the various steps, always bear in mind that the end result is not only a report, but a contribution to achieving equal rights for ALL!
