Project Summary

This project seeks to support APEC’s priorities to promote human capital development and broad-based economic growth by increasing access of persons with disabilities to inclusive education, training, and employment opportunities.  This project will convene a meeting during the second Senior Officials Meeting in 2017 to discuss the findings of a 2016 U.S. self-funded project (HRD 03 2016S) on the employment of persons with disabilities, develop recommendations, and identify strategies and technical assistance to increase employment of persons with disabilities.  The meeting participants will identify resources within APEC economies and international organizations to support the implementation of the recommendations and facilitate the development of economy action plans.  The meeting will convene APEC economy government representatives with expertise on disability issues, report researchers, international organization experts, and civil society leaders, including persons with disabilities and Disabled Persons Organizations.  This project supports the APEC Group of Friends on Disability, which seeks to integrate disability issues across APEC.
