The United Nations is committed to fostering diversity and inclusion and is taking concrete steps to make its premises, offices, and meeting spaces inclusive of and accessible to persons with disabilities and staff with dependents with disabilities. These steps are being addressed in accordance with the general principles of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), and the UN Disability Inclusion Strategy (UNDIS) launched in 2019. UNDIS is a system-wide mechanism for sustainable and transformative progress on disability inclusion through all pillars of the UN’s work. Together, these efforts are also central to achieving the goals set forth in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to leave no one behind.
Persons with disabilities are the largest minority group in the world, representing an estimated 15% of the world’s population, or approximately 1 billion people. About 80 per cent are of working age. They are a diverse, heterogeneous population that face discrimination and barriers that make it more challenging for them to access equal opportunities in the world of work. Including persons with disabilities into the workforce of UN operations and creating an inclusive environment through accessible premises has shown to provide numerous benefits. They include improvements in cost-effectiveness, turnover and retention, reliability and punctuality, staff loyalty, inclusive work culture, increased innovation, productivity, work ethic, safety, ability awareness, agency image, and diversity, loyalty, and satisfaction of beneficiaries.
Persons with disabilities include those who have long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments, which in interaction with various barriers may hinder their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others.
In line with the rights-based approach to disability, the United Nations is taking appropriate measures to ensure persons with disabilities have access, on an equal basis with others, to the UN premises to ensure their full and effective participation.
