Main concept note:


The realization of the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all persons with disabilities, and their full and effective participation and inclusion in society, are hindered by the impact of multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination.

Discrimination against persons with disabilities results in lower employment rates,

lower rates of participation in public and political life and decreased access to services such as education, health, rehabilitation, sexual and reproductive health and justice.

Persons with disabilities who are subjected to multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination thus experience great marginalization, and failure to address discrimination against them will negate the aspiration of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that “no one will be left behind”.


“Multiple discrimination” is defined as a situation in which a person experiences discrimination based on two or more grounds, which compounds or aggravates it.

Intersecting discrimination refers to a situation in which several grounds are inseparably intertwined.

Grounds for discrimination include but are not limited to: age; disability; sex; ethnic, indigenous, national or social origin; political or other opinion; race; religion; refugee, migrant or asylum status; or any other status




Find here the sub-themes:


  • Addressing the impact of multiple discrimination on persons with disabilities and promoting their participation and multi-stakeholder partnerships for achieving the SDGs in line with the CRPD;
  • Inclusion and full participation of persons with disabilities in humanitarian action;
  • Promoting inclusive urban development and implementation of the New Urban Agenda –  Habitat III.
