Dynamic Coalition on Accessibility and Disability

Second Meeting of the Dynamic Coalition on Accessibility and Disability (DCAD)
16 November 2009, 14.00-15.30, Room 6,
Alexandrina Sharm el Sheikh International Congress Center
Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt

The Dynamic Coalition on Accessibility and Disability will facilitate interaction between relevant bodies, and ensure that ICT accessibility is included in the key debates around Internet Governance in order to build a future where all sectors of the global community have equal access to the Information Society. We are convinced that the entire community can benefit from an "accessible ICT world", as people can be permanently or temporarily disabled due to personal, environmental (e.g., a phone call in a noisy environment) or cultural (e.g., spoken language diversity) conditions.

One of the most important goals for this second face-to-face meeting of the DCAD is to finalize the MESSAGE to be presented to the Main Session on Access and Diversity at the IGF meeting in Sharm El-Sheikh and to set up the future activities of this Dynamic Coalition.

Moderator: Andrea Saks (DCAD Coordinator)
