2 Introdction The International Disability Alliance (IDA) advances the hman rights of persons with disabilities as a nited voice of for regional and eight global organizations of persons with disabilities (DPOs). The International Disability and Development Consortim (IDDC) is a global network of 26 disability and development NGOs and organisations of persons with disabilities working in more than one hndred contries arond the world. Both IDA and IDDC members have been active in the process that shaped the 2030 Agenda This gide presents information abot the 2030 Agenda, how it connects to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and explores potential entry points for persons with disabilities to inflence and participate in their implementation, follow-p and review

3 Transforming or World: the 2030 Agenda for Sstainable Development On 25 September 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda It was the first time in hman history that we as hman beings reached consenss on the ftre of development. UN DESA s Under-Secretary-General W Hongbo We cold be the first generation to scceed in ending poverty everywhere.

4 Transforming or World: the 2030 Agenda for Sstainable Development Heads of State and Governments committed to: bilding a better ftre for all people, inclding millions denied the chance to lead decent, dignified and rewarding lives and to achieve their fll hman potential; scceeding in ending poverty, redcing ineqalities, and saving the planet from ecological degradation and climate change.

5 Overview The 2030 Agenda was the otcome of the post-2015 intergovernmental negotiations. The 2030 Agenda is a sbstantive 35-page docment containing five sections: 1. Preamble 2. Declaration 3. Sstainable Development Goals and targets 4. Means of implementation and the Global Partnership 5. Follow-p and Review

7 The 2030 Agenda VISION & PRINCIPLES Reflected in declaration RESULTS FRAMEWORK SDGs Sstainable Development Goals Global Partnership Means of Implementation (MoIs) IMPLEMENTATION FOLLOW-UP & REVIEW Image with thanks to the UN: sstainabledevelopment.n.org

8 Political balance of the 2030 Agenda The political balance of the Agenda can be smmarized as: Universal Ambition vs. National Ownership The Declaration defines the concept of national ownership as a conterweight to its niversality, which is reflected and reinforced throghot the entire Agenda: This is an Agenda of nprecedented scope and significance. It is accepted by all contries and is applicable to all, taking into accont different national realities, capacities and levels of development and respecting national policies and priorities (para 5)

9 Political balance of the 2030 Agenda National ownership means States are committed to implement the Agenda, bt only within their own nationally defined limits. Ths, States are permitted to prioritize and carry ot what they consider to be nationally acceptable. This balance is necessary becase the Agenda is a political commitment, not a legally binding docment.

10 Inclsion of persons with disabilities Persons with disabilities were not inclded in the Millennim Development Goals (MDGs) and conseqently exclded from many development initiatives and fnding streams. In contrast, the 2030 Agenda incldes persons with disabilities.

11 Comparing the MDGs and the 2030 Agenda Millennim Development Goals (MDGs) Adopted in 2000 and end in 2015 Focs on developing contries To redce extreme poverty 8 goals and 18 targets with 48 indicators No references to persons with disabilities 2030 Agenda Adopted in 2015 and end in 2030 Universal, applies to all contries To eradicate poverty in all its forms and and to realize economic empowerment throgh sstainable development 17 goals and 169 targets with 231 global indicators 7 references in SDGs: edcation (2), employment, redcing ineqalities, inclsive cities (2), disaggregation of data by disability (All together 11 in Agenda 2030 and 9 in global indicators)

12 Explicit references to Persons with Disabilities Persons with disabilities are referenced 11 times in the 2030 Agenda: Declaration 1. Hman rights (paragraph 19) 2. Vlnerable grops (paragraph 23) 3. Edcation (paragraph 25)

13 Explicit references to Persons with Disabilities Sstainable Development Goals and targets 4,5. Goal 4: edcation 2 References 6. Goal 8: employment 1 Reference 7. Goal 10: redcing ineqalities 1 Reference 8,9. Goal 11: inclsive cities 2 References 10. Goal 17: means of implementation, data 1 Reference Follow-p and review 11. Data disaggregation (paragraph 74, g)

14 References to vlnerable People who are vlnerable mst be empowered. Those whose needs are reflected in the Agenda inclde all children, yoth, persons with disabilities (of whom more than 80 per cent live in poverty) - paragraph 23 This paragraph is particlarly strong becase it calls for the empowerment of vlnerable people and places persons with disabilities at the centre of poverty eradication throghot the entire Agenda.

15 References to vlnerable Inclding persons with disabilities among vlnerable people means that whenever vlnerable is referenced throghot the Agenda (18 times), these provisions directly apply to persons with disabilities. The disability movement prefers the term at risk rather than vlnerable, bt vlnerable is more broadly accepted by governments at the UN. De to the political sensitivity of the 2030 Agenda negotiations it was not possible to change this term.

16 Other references to persons with disabilities 2030 Agenda references a nmber of UN docments that inclde references to persons with disabilities: Beijing Platform for Action has 24 references to persons with disabilities Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Redction has 5 references to persons with disabilities and an additional two references on niversal design SIDS Accelerated Modalities of Action (SAMOA) Pathway has 10 references to persons with disabilities

18 Preamble: Backgrond The Preamble to the 2030 Agenda contains a brief statement on its fndamental principles Before the final agreement, there were two draft versions of the Preamble: 1. a longer more explanatory version that wold have elaborated on the principles in line with the goals; the argments against this were the risks of dplication, misinterpretation or weakening of certain goals 2. a concise smmary; argment for this was that it wold be easier to nderstand, preserve the integrity of the goals, and shorten the docment The shorter version is in the final Agenda.

19 Preamble: The Five Ps The Preamble lists five fndamental principles: People: all hman beings can flfil their potential in dignity and eqality Planet: to protect the planet and its resorces from degradation for present and ftre generations Prosperity: all hman beings can enjoy prosperos and flfilling lives and that economic, social and technological progress occrs in harmony with natre Peace: foster peacefl, jst and inclsive societies which are free from fear and violence Partnership: 1. mobilize the means to implement 2. focs on the poorest and most vlnerable 3. with the participation of all contries, all stakeholders and all people

32 SDGs: General The SDGs are integrated and indivisible, global in natre and niversally applicable. Each government will decide how the SDGs shold be incorporated into national planning processes, policies and strategies.

71 Follow-p and Review: Overview The Agenda s final chapter otlines its aims: 1. to track progress in implementation and 2. to ensre that no one is left behind The follow-p and review mechanism (paragraphs 47 & 77) is the litms test of the Agenda, it will only work with: Vision: robst, volntary, effective, participatory, transparent and integrated follow-p and review framework is realized Inclsive partnerships: effective international cooperation and exchanges of best practices and mtal learning The follow-p and review mechanism doesn't make States accontable bt once again ensres national ownership. However, as a political compromise, it does promote their accontability to their citizens, inclding persons with disabilities

72 Persons with Disabilities and Accontability Persons with disabilities were instrmental in creating this transformational roadmap to a better ftre. Now the hard work of real change lies directly ahead. Persons with disabilities mst be leaders, giding the world towards achieving these goals for everyone. This jorney demands or persistent and nwavering dty to hold or governments accontable to their own commitments. Or fll engagement in the follow-p and review mechanism is fndamental. We cannot afford to be left behind again. - Maryanne Diamond, Chair of the International Disability Alliance, 2015

73 Persons with Disabilities and Accontability The participation of persons with disabilities in the follow-p and review mechanism is critical and will serve as a litms test to whether the 2030 Agenda flfilled what the MDGs have failed for persons with disabilities Persons with disabilities mst engage with their governments and monitor that the 2030 Agenda is implemented for them and with them.

74 Follow-p and Review: Principles Volntary: National ownership and contry-led Robst: applies niversally across all contries and all three dimension of sstainable development (social, economic, environmental) Effective: aiming to identification of soltions and best practices and promote the coordination and effectiveness of the international development system Participatory: Be open, inclsive, participatory and transparent for all people Integrated: People-centred, gender-sensitive, respect hman rights + focs on the poorest, most vlnerable and those frthest behind Efficient: Bild on existing platforms and processes bild and respond to national circmstances, capacities, needs and priorities Data-driven: Based on evidence global indicators, enhanced capacity-bilding on data collection Mltilateral: Active spport of the United Nations system and other mltilateral instittions

75 Levels of the Follow-p and Review Framework National/sb-national levels: governments condct reglar and inclsive reviews of progress; the review mechanism will differ in every contry, the inclsion of stakeholders is encoraged in the 2030 Agenda Regional/Sb-regional levels: governments ndertake peer learning, inclding throgh volntary reviews, sharing of best practices and discssion of shared targets and cooperation each region will designate a body or organisaton to achieve this Global level: The High-level Political Form (HLPF) ndertakes the global follow-p and review of governments implementation of the SDGs

78 High-Level Political Form (HLPF): Global Level Reason for establishing it: To improve and make a more effective instittional framework for sstainable development To promote synergies and coherence within the UN system To mandate the highest level of implementation monitoring To provide a form for open, transparent, participative and internationally comparable reviews and proposals (althogh not a legally binding accontability mechanism, the global level review provides opportnities for high profile attention)

79 HLPF: Roles 1. Facilitate sharing of experiences 2. Provide political leadership, gidance and recommendations 3. Promote system-wide coherence 4. Coordinate sstainable development policies 5. Assess progress, challenges and emerging isses

80 HLPF: Roles The HLPF is informed by: Annal Progress Report on the Sstainable Development Goals to be prepared by the Secretary-General together with UN system and global indicators Global Sstainable Development Report (is abot science-policy interface and cold provide a strong evidence-based instrment to spport policymakers) ECOSOC consltation Stakeholder Consltations

81 HLPF: Types of reviews Reglar reviews by the HLPF of contries: Volntary, State-led, involving ministerial and other relevant high-level participants Universally: for both developed and developing contries Provide a platform for partnerships, inclding throgh the participation of stakeholders Spported by reporting also of relevant United Nations entities and other stakeholders, inclding civil society and the private sector

82 HLPF: Types of reviews Thematic reviews, inclding cross-ctting isses, by the HLPF of all contries by theme: On progress achieved in SDGs implementation and on cross-ctting isses Spported by reviews by the fnctional commissions of the ECOSOC and other intergovernmental bodies and forms Engagement of stakeholders and feed-back from them providing position papers contribting to reports speaking roles (see following slide for details)

83 HLPF: Stakeholder Engagement The HLPF is composed of Member States, bt is also open to relevant stakeholders, inclding persons with disabilities. In order to make better se of their expertise, the UN General Assembly has mandated stakeholders - inclding persons with disabilities: 1. To attend all official meetings of the form 2. To have access to all official information and docments 3. To intervene in official meetings 4. To sbmit docments and present written and oral contribtions 5. To make recommendations 6. To organize side events and rond tables, in cooperation with Member States and the Secretariat This means the HLPF is the highest form to raise any isses abot SDG implementation related to persons with disabilities

84 Statistics and data collection Qality, accessible, timely and reliable disaggregated data will be needed to help with the measrement of progress and to ensre that no one is left behind. Sch data is key to decision making. Data and information from existing reporting mechanisms shold be sed where possible Agenda, pargraph 48 It is important to collect data which measres the progress of SDG implementation for persons with disabilities. Persons with disabilities mst be both active sers and contribtors to the data concerning them, as in line with the UN CRPD.

85 Statistics and data collection

86 Indicator Framework Althogh the 2030 Agenda references it, the global indicator framework is a separate process. The global framework was developed by statistical experts and will reqire approval from the UN Statistical Commission in March 2016, agreement by the Economic and Social Concil, and adoption by the UN General Assembly. Global indicators will measre the progress made in implementing the SDGs. Sch data is key to decision-making and to help with the measrement of progress, making international comparisons and ensring that no one is left behind. Data and information from existing national and international reporting mechanisms shold be sed where possible. In order to enable data collection, statistical capacities reqire strengthening. We need very robst data sets on disability to help monitor progress. It is important to measre whether people with disability are really being left behind or whether they are progressing eqally with others.

87 International Cooperation It is important to recognise that international cooperation activities need to be inclsive of and accessible to persons with disabilities to ensre the fll realization of the objectives and prpose of the CRPD.
