Biwako Plus 5 Adopted

| 0 Comments

Inclusive Tourism in Asia benefits directly from the work of UNESCAP and the Biwako documents. During a September 19-21, 2007 meeting in Bangkok to evalute progress toward document goals access to leisure received support. Planning for ICAT 2007 surged ahead in that environment. One foundation for further progress lies in governments and industry adopting an appropriate understanding of disability:

A. Reinforcing a rights-based approach to disability issues

Strategy 1

26. Governments take note of a newly emerging trend in understanding disability as an evolving concept and are encouraged to recognize disability as a result of the interaction between persons with impairments and attitudinal and environmental barriers that hinder their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others. Governments are encouraged to incorporate this understanding of disability into their existing and new policies. Particular attention should be paid to the removal of any barriers that prevent persons with disabilities from fully participating in society and exercising their rights.
