We have received fantastic news from the UN that they have approved our application for NGO accreditation to the Conference of States Parties to the CRPD. This will allow us to participate in the Conferences.
According to Article 40 of the Convention “The States Parties shall meet regularly in a Conference of States Parties in order to consider any matter with regard to the implementation of the present Convention.” EASPD will now be able to join these discussions.
This international recognition by the United Nations of our role as representative of social service providers for persons with disabilities will also strengthen our voice in Brussels in our talks with European Officials.
