Advocacy in New Zealand

Raising awareness in New Zealand so no one is left behind 

cbm at Festival One 2016 raising awareness for people with disabilities in the world's poorest countriesAdvocacy forms an important part of cbm’s mission to improve the lives of persons with disabilities living in the poorest countries. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD), Agenda 2030 and Sendai Disaster Risk Reduction Framework have prepared fertile ground for reaching this goal.

THE NEED
To address the three dimensions of sustainable development (economic, social and environmental), Agenda 2030 guides development for the next 15 years. Although disability is referenced eleven times out of the 17 goals and targets, cbm advocates for inclusion of persons with disabilities in all 17 goals. 

HOW WE ARE HELPING
cbm communicates evidence from our projects to mainstream inclusive development organisations within New Zealand – ensuring that even more people with disabilities living in poverty around the world will benefit!

YOU CAN ENSURE INCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT IS MAINSTREAMED WITHIN NEW ZEALAND
