The vision of the Australian Disability and Development Consortium (ADDC) is that the voices and rights of people with disabilities are elevated, reflected in, and inform all international development policies and programs of Australian agencies.

In pursuit of this vision, we welcome the opportunity to provide input drawn from the experience and expertise of our membership to the formation of the Australian Government’s forthcoming International Disability Equity and Rights Strategy.

In this submission, ADDC recommends a framework explaining how DFAT can think and act to advance the realisation of disability equity and rights throughout our region and globally.
