Where can we see consensus already? Broad consensus on the need for a unified development agenda post 2015 Poverty eradication must be at the core of the new agenda A renewed global partnership with shared responsibilities and reflection of the development landscape of today is needed Inequalities have to be addressed and the new agenda should focus on ensuring participation for marginalized groups as well as to foster equality of opportunities and outcomes Photo Credit: UN Photo

The Way Forward Let us keep in mind that: The role of a global agenda is to provide a global norm and an advocacy tool to drive commitments towards issues related to disabilities Development however takes place in each and every country. Unless effective policies are in place to drive the structural transformation leading to development and awareness of issues related to disabilities, equal opportunities for people with disabilities will continue being an elusive goal
