A major barrier to realizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for persons with disabilities is a scarcity of disaggregated data on disability. This prevents the development of appropriate and effective disability-inclusive policy. The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected persons with disabilities. It has also blocked the flow of disability data at the moment when it is needed the most.
The Disability Data Initiative (ddi) is one of the first initiatives to review and analyze internationally comparable data on disability and inequalities.
This event is co-sponsored by the Philippines Permanent Mission to the United Nations and the World Bank.
