The State of Kuwait reiterated its full commitment to the implementation of the provisions of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disability.

Kuwait also affirmed continuous efforts to enhance these disable people's rights and better integrate them in the society to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals within the framework of the Kuwait 2035 Vision towards persons with disability.

This came in a statement delivered late Wednesday by Member of the Higher Council of the Public Authority for People with Special Needs Affairs Rehab Bouresli during the 9th session of the Conference of States Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) that kicked off on Tuesday.

The State of Kuwait began adopting the goals of sustainable development pertaining to the disability that were announced by the UN last September in the domains of health, education and the economy with the societal partnership between the government sectors and civil society organizations, she said.

She added that Kuwait is seeking to promote equality in all social, political, civil and economic rights to enhance the rights of persons with disabilities in general, and those with intellectual disabilities in particular. In an unprecedented move on international level, the Kuwaiti parliament received persons with disabilities for the 11th year in a row to discuss their issues and follow up the activation of the international convention in this regard, she noted.

She said Kuwait has been exerting efforts to boost rights of disabled persons through integrating their issues in all national and regional policies and strategies. Bouresli pointed out that a special Gulf forum will be held next March to mull in details relevant issues related to services offered to people with special needs.

On the sidelines of the conference, Kuwait Mission to the UN is sponsoring a sideØ¢¬event on Thursday titled (Urban Development and Human Resilience: An Essential approach towards Inclusive Cities for Persons with Disabilities in the Arab Region "Over View of Kuwait 2035 Vision towards Persons with Disability as model to the region").

This event aims to highlight the main challenges facing urban development of inclusive cities for persons with disability in the Arabs region, and emphasize the concept of networking and co-operation between civil society organizations and governmental entities working in the disability field in the Arabs region. A Kuwaiti delegation led by Bouresli is taking in the three-day conference.
