Kiribati National Disability Policy And Action Plan

The Government of Kiribati (GoK) made an important commitment to its citizens with disabilities by acceding to the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in 2013. In doing this, the government committed to recognize people with disabilities as stakeholders with equal citizenship rights. The Kiribati National Disability Policy and Action Plan 2018 – 2021 (KNDP) provides the framework to guide the work of all stakeholders in implementing the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). The Government of Kiribati KNDP 2018 – 2021 is also mandated to promote and achieve the GoK’s inclusive development efforts aligned with its 2016 Motinnano and KV20. This policy has been driven by people with disabilities working with government and partners across many sectors. The KNDP reflects the leadership and advocacy of Te Toa Matoa (TTM) in bringing on board many stakeholders to understand that disability inclusive development requires deep and genuine attitudinal, societal, structural and institutional change.
