All Different, All Equal
The Public Defender’s Office and UNDP brought together Georgian policy-makers, civil society organizations, representatives of national and local authorities, and international organizations to discuss the rights of persons with disabilities.
The discussion on 25 October 2013 focused on the legislative environment and state programmes designed for providing people with disabilities with access to all aspects of public life – employment, education, and social services.
Sophie Kemkhadze of UNDP in Georgia, Paata Beltadze – Deputy Public Defender of Georgia, and David Lomidze – Deputy Minister of Labour, Health and Social Affairs of Georgia, addressed the participant at the opening sessions.
“To address challenges faced by persons with disabilities in Georgia we need to base our work on a comprehensive research which examines vulnerabilities and reveals acute problems,” Sophie Kemkhadze said.
The participants of the conference looked into comprehensive assessments of the status and challenges of persons with disabilities undertaken by the Public Defender’s Office with assistance from UNDP. They also discussed specific results related to persons with disabilities from the UNDP’s earlier research of economic and social vulnerability in Georgia.
