DFAT Webinar on Disability Inclusion

In this webinar DFAT presenters focus on disability-inclusive development which is a priority for Australia’s international engagement.


They discuss the Development for All 2015-2020: Strategy for strengthening disability-inclusive development in Australia's aid program and give examples of how it is being applied within Australia's Aid program to promote improved quality of life of people with disabilities in developing countries. This webinar will be of interest to member organisations who are reviewing their compliance with section B.3 of the Code of Conduct - Human Rights.

A recording of the webinar is now available at their YouTube channel at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTlJIIAdtro&feature=youtu.be

They have increased the volume on this recording as it was hard for many to hear, and as the connection dropped out from time to time, there are a few silences but the recording continues to the end.
