Global Disability Summit 2022


Global Disability Summit 2022 - Norway

The International Disability Alliance (IDA), the Government of Norway, and the Government of Ghana will host the second Global Disability Summit on 16 and 17 February 2022 (GDS22). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and to ensure inclusive participation at the Summit, the event will be held on a digital platform.

The aim of the Summit is to obtain lasting change for persons with disabilities. To succeed, it is vital that Governments, international organizations, civil society, and the private sector commit to strengthening their efforts to promote inclusion and rights-based development.

A range of different focus areas will be discussed under the two overarching themes, ‘meaningful engagement’ and ‘building back better and more inclusive in light of Covid-19’. The topics of the Summit are universal and in line with the 2030 Agenda, but the Summit will focus on the countries that are the furthest from achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

In addition to Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre, President of Ghana Akufo-Addo, and President of the International Disability Alliance Yannis Vardakastanis, UN Secretary-General António Guterres participate in the opening of the Summit. Other participants were included high-level representatives from UN member states, heads of UN organisations and multilateral development banks, as well as representatives of organisations of persons with disabilities.
