A copy of the guidance note for the United Nations country teams to include the rights of persons with disabilities in their programming at country level has been recently published by the United Nations Development Group /Inter-Agency Support Group for the Convention for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The guidance note is a crucial tool for the UN Country teams and can play a significant role in supporting States to implement the UN Convention. This will be carried out through the design and implementation of the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) and through the work of individual agencies in their areas of mandate, ITU being one of the agencies actively working in this area.

Copy of the guidance note is available in the section Resources on accessibility in the ITU-T accessibility portal at:
