Framing a Discussion Paper for the Global Disability Summit 2022

Framing a Discussion Paper for the Global Disability Summit 2022

The International Disability Alliance (IDA) and the Government of Norway will host the second Global Disability Summit on 15 – 17 February 2022 (GDS22). The Global Disability Summit 2022 provides a unique global opportunity to generate commitments to advance inclusion of persons with disabilities. Participation of organisations of persons with disabilities (OPDs) has been identified as a cross-cutting theme and an important area of focus that should underpin GDS discussions and commitments. As a co-host of the GDS and global OPD network, IDA has been mandated to lead on the development of a Discussion Paper on OPD engagement.

A small advisory group has been set-up to guide the process of the discussion paper. Known as the G3, the group will support the review and selection of Good Practices/ Case Studies that will feed into the paper. The G3 will also screen and propose a selection based on the parameters described in the full call for submission. Pre-selected applicants may be contacted directly for further information and/or to validate how their work is being included in the final text of the GDS Discussion Paper.

How to submit a Good Practice/ Case study?
To be able to develop this Discussion Paper on OPD engagement, we will need your good practice / case studies.

Once you have completed the form, please send it by email to by the 8 September 2021.

Please contact Emma Pham at if you face any difficulty or would like to share your good practice in an alternative format.
