The CBR Africa Network (CAN) and the government of Zambia will jointly host the CBR conference on inclusive development scheduled to take place in Livingstone, Zambia starting from 7th to 11th May 2018.

The  conference, whose theme is ‘CBR for resilience building and sustainable development: leave no one behind’, is expected to influence stakeholders’ actions of the participating countries in ensuring disability issues are integrated in the development agenda. This is an opportunity for stakeholders to learn and unlearn how to effectively ensure the quality of life of persons with disability.

The conference aims to share good practices and lessons learnt, providing a forum for dialoguing among CBR participants (Government, Disabled Peoples Organizations, Civil Society and Academia); promote disability mainstreaming and inclusion in line with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
