H.H. Sheikha Moza to attend Doha International Conference on Disability and Development (DICDD)


H.H. Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, founder of Qatar Foundation for Social Work (QFSW) will kindly sponsor the inaugural Doha International Conference on Disability and Development (DICDD) on Saturday, at the Qatar National Convention Centre.





The two-day DICDD will take place under the theme “Leaving no one behind”, organised by the QFSW in collaboration with local and international partners.

The conference will feature several distinguished speakers including Amina Mohamed, Deputy Secretary-general of the United Nations, deputy secretary general of the UN; Xavier Torres, advisor of the Presidential Government of Ecuador; and Edward Ndopu, as well as a number of Their Excellencies and senior officials, with the participation of more than 40 speakers and more than 1000 people from Qatar and the world.

The aim of the DICDD is to highlight and address the issues and challenges faced by people with disabilities, which affect more than 1. 5bn people worldwide.

The DICDD will culminate in the announcement of the “Doha Declaration,” which will become a key international reference point for policy development and the advancement of human rights and sustainable social development for persons with disabilities.

The State of Qatar is leading a global initiative to bring about the desired change at the level of the living conditions of about 15 percent of the world’s population, in addition to enhancing their capabilities and providing opportunities for them to exercise their full rights in fulfillment of its obligations towards the Sustainable Development Goals 2030 and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.



The DICDD features a new approach in dealing with issues of persons with disabilities based on an inclusive view of development and empowerment policies and programs, as well as basic human rights principles and a strong practical will to bring about change.
