Is there an umbrella organization representing, at minimum, 50% of all those associations for persons with disabilities, that receives directly basic public funding?

Relates to Convention Article:

  • No.32, International Cooperation

In detail

Article 32 prescribes that “States Parties recognize the importance of international cooperation…and will undertake appropriate and effective measures in this regard, between and among States and, as appropriate, in partnership with relevant international and regional organizations and civil society, in particular organizations of persons with disabilities”.

International cooperation, advocacy and representation can be at its best when there is a well-equipped umbrella organisation that represents as many NGOs as possible.
