International Day of Persons with Disabilities

Media Type


In accordance with the International Day for Persons with Disabilities 2020, the National Agenda for the Future of Syria (NAFS) Programme put together this video to shed light on building back better: towards an inclusive, accessible and sustainable post COVID-19 Syria by, for and with persons with disabilities.

Although persons with disabilities usually rank quite low on the list of priorities for the peacebuilding phase, taking both the impacts of conflict and COVID-19 into account when drafting policies contribute directly to sustainable and inclusive peacebuilding as around 1 in 3 Syrians live with disabilities today.
