The global community has agreed to work toward 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These are goals for improving the lives of all humans by 2030. Meanwhile, the disability community says that disability-inclusive SDG programs are crucial. Thus, many Deaf, DeafBlind, and disability organizations signed a position paper. They say SDG programs should follow the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). In other words, SDG programs should include people with disabilities in everything.

The position paper explains the history of the SDGs. It also provides recommendations for how to create disability-inclusive SDG programs.

The main text of the web page is accessible for people using screen reading software. But images and forms on the page are not accessible. For example, images do not use alternative text to describe them. The position paper also is available in PDF format. The PDF document is also partly accessible, with some limits. For example, it does not use bookmarks.

People not already familiar will want to begin with an overview of the SDGs. Or people also can watch a summary of the SDGs in International Sign.
