    Report of the Special Rapporteur on the rights of persons with disabilities on her visit to Zambia

    22 February 2017

    Report by Catalina Davandas Aguilar following her visit to Zambia. In her statement she says: "There are good opportunities and great potential for Zambia to become a disability champion in the African region. Zambia must build on the momentum created by the adoption of the Persons with Disabilities Act, the National Policy on Disability and the National Implementation Plan on Disability and make greater efforts towards their implementation. The implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals, as well as the seventh National Development Plan, constitute great opportunities to foster development that is inclusive of persons with disabilities. The Special Rapporteur looks forward to a continued dialogue and collaboration with the Government of Zambia and other actors on the implementation of her recommendations."
