Review and Strategic Directions for Building Inclusive Knowledge Societies for Persons with Disabilities

This report has been commissioned in the context of the approaching deadline of 2015 for the MDG (Millennium Development Goals) as defined by the United Nations General Assembly to assess the progress of actions initiated after the first and second WSIS (World Summit on Information Society) to promote the digital inclusion of persons with disabilities and to provide policy recommendations.

WSIS Action Line 3 “Access to Information and Knowledge” and other relevant lines, include action points on inclusion of Persons with Disabilities, mainly focusing on improving access to information and knowledge. Within the framework of these action points, the objective of this report is to review the current status, analyze trends and emerging innovations in connection to the use by persons with disabilities of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) to access information and knowledge, and to formulate recommendations that will help UNESCO and other partners in shaping its strategy.
