Building a Movement through the Cities for All Global Compact and Campaign

World Enabled led a campaign of more than 130 organizations to ensure that cities around the world include persons with disabilities and older persons as equal stakeholders. With our partners, we hosted a series of advocacy efforts directly with partner governments, academic institutions, and industry allies. This resulted in three unique contributions to shaping the future of cities. The first was the launch of a global commitment to building inclusive and accessible cities at the Third Global Conference on Housing and Sustainable Development (Habitat III). The second was the formal adoption of fifteen references to persons with disabilities and thirty two references to older persons in the New Urban Agenda (NUA), the outcome document of HABITAT III. Third, with the support of the Ford Foundation we launched the Disability Inclusive and Accessible Urban Development (DIAUD) Network.

The Cities for All Global Compact and Campaign was created to make 100 cities inclusive and accessible for all. The global compact identifies the key principles for inclusive and accessible urban development and advances this work through three interconnected efforts. First, formation of a 5 year global campaign. Second, the launch of a Global Summit on Inclusive and Accessible Cities. Third, the establishment of the C4A Community of Practice. In 2019, the campaign will engage with a broad coaltion of partners to develop the C4A Roadmap to ensure sustainability of the initiative.
