69th Commission Session: Agenda item 3(g)
CR 2: 25 April 2013
Joint Statement of Civil Society Organizations to the Committee of the Whole II
Thank you, Madame Chairperson,
Distinguished Delegates,
It is my honour to convey to you the Joint Statement of Civil Society Organizations.
Our Statement reads as follows:
“We, 18 civil society organizations gathered in Bangkok on Tewnty-third April 2013 in the Informal
Session of Civil Society Organizations on the Working Group on the Asian and Pacific Decade of
Persons with Disabilities, 2013 to 2022, and decided on which civil society organizations would
participate in the Working Group on the Asian and Pacific Decade of Persons with Disabilities.
We deeply appreciate the agreement reached by the High-level Intergovernmental Meeting on the Final Reiview of the Implementation of the Asian and Pacific Decade of Disabled Persons, 2003 to 2012, held last year in Incheon, Republic of Korea, to include, on an equal basis with ESCAP members and
associate members, civil society organizations in the membership of the Working Group.
In the regard, we are pleased to present to the Commission in alphabetical order the following
15 civil society organizations which are ready to serve as full members of the Working Group:
1. ASEAN Disability Forum
2. Asia-Pacific Development Center on Disability
3. Asia-Pacific Disability Forum
4. Asia-Pacific DPO United
5. Central Asian Disability Forum 
6. Digital Accessible Information System Consortium
7. Disabled Peoples’ International
8. Inclusion International
9. Pacific Disability Forum
10. Rehabilitation International
11. South Asian Disability Forum
12. World Blind Union
13. World Federation of the Deaf
14. World Federation of the Deafblind
15. World Network of Users and Survivors of Psychiatry
We wish to record our gratitude to the followin three sister civil society organizations that have offered to extend, in their capacity as observers, full support to the Working Group. They anr the ASEAN
Autism Network, Christian Blind Mission and the Community-based Rehabilitation Asia-Pacific Network.
We reached a common understanding among ourselves that, by the next ESCAP high-level
intergovernmental meeting in 2017, priority consideration would be given to these three civil society
organizations for full civil society organization membership in the Working Group for the second half of
the present Decade.
We reached consensus, based on our shared commitment to two fundamental principles for our
mutural support and advancement, namely, solidarity among all of us,
and “nothing about us without us”.
We shall endeavour in the Working Group to articulate the concerns of the manay civil society
organizations that contribute to disability-inclusive development in the ESCAP region, but are not
members of the Working Group.
We reffrim our strong commitment to working closely with Government partners towards the
effective implementation of the Incheon Strategy.
The Incheon Strategy is the Asian and Pacific region’s pioneering contribution to the High-level Meeting
on Disability and Development, to e held in New York on 23rd September this year.
We expect that its outcome document will directly contribute to the explicit inclusion of disability
concerns in the post-2015 development agenda.
Permit us to urge all Governments of the ESCAP membership to ensure the active engagement of civil society organizations in the preparatory process at all levels for the September 2013 High-level Meeting on Disability and Development and the post-2015 development agenda.
Finally, our warmest appreciation goes to the ESCAP secretariat of its tremendous facilitation efforts
that ensured the inclusiveness of the entire multi-year process for preparing the Incheon Strategy.
Through such inclusiveness, we are committed to working closely with all stakeholders for the
successful implementation of the Incheon Strategy and its Ministerial Declaration.
We thank you.“
Distinguished Delegates, that concludes the Joint Statement of the 18 civil Society organizations.
