08:00 AM - 09:30 AM        (CR.11) How Can Digital Societies Contribute to Achieving the SDGs for Persons with Disabilities? (COSP-9 Side Event)
This Side Event at the 9th Conference of States Parties to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities will discuss ways in which new forms of evidence – like social media, crowdsourced information through apps and other large-scale digital information – can contribute to implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for persons with disabilities. Example projects will be presented – such as AXS Map, AXSSchools, and Bmaps – apps which can gather information on accessible public places and accessible schools and thus contribute to the implementation of SDG targets 4.a (schools sensitive for persons with disabilities) and SDG target 11.7 (accessible public spaces). A research paper exploring opportunities of digital information in improving the situation and empowering persons with disabilities will be presented and discussed. The side event will also present a road map on this topic.

Despite significant public attention towards autism issues over the last two decades, most conversations on autism remain focused on young children rather than those of adults. As the autistic adult community becomes more visible, the needs and priorities of this population should be a growing area of policy interest for national governments, particularly in light of CRPD obligations impacting this population. This session will discuss the ways in which the autistic adult community’s needs are relevant to the full realization of CRPD commitments, placing particular emphasis on supported decision-making and legal capacity, community living policy and services, integrated employment outcomes and health care experiences of autistic adults.
Speakers: Hon. Justyne Caruana, Parliamentary Secretary for Rights of Persons with Disability and Active Ageing, Republic of Malta (Chair); Ari Ne’eman, President, Autistic Self Advocacy Network; Sam Crane, Legal Director, Autistic Self Advocacy Network; Sara Liss, Staff Attorney, Disability Rights New York; Finn Gardiner, Director, Autistic Self Advocacy Network of Boston.
