First CBR World Congress – India 2012

WHO and Mobility India, in collaboration with CBR Network India (CBRIN), organized the first Congress in Agra, India in 2012, attended by over 1,000 delegates from 85 countries – policymakers and rehabilitation professionals, local and international NGOs and DPOs, government officials, and other stakeholders from around the world.

Second CBR World Congress – Malaysia 2016

Empowering and Enabling

Community actions towards human rights and sustainable development through CBR

The second CBR World Congress came at a pivotal time – 2016 saw the 10th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) marked the first anniversary of the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) coming into force. Therefore this Congress was a perfect opportunity to take stock of what CBR is today and how it has evolved over the years into an inclusive development strategy. Importantly, the Congress was also the platform from which to look forward and to reflect on the future direction of CBR in the context of the CRPD and SDGs.

CBR is characterized by the active involvement in it of persons with disabilities, their families, and community support groups, and also by its multi-sectorial approach to inclusive development. CBR is increasingly engaging decision makers from municipalities, villages and district authorities, local governance, and  regional and country governments to work together to reduce inequalities among persons with disabilities in the community.

As CBR continues to evolve to respond to current needs and trends, it is imperative that these characteristics are maintained and strengthened.

The objectives of the Congress were:

  1. To create an international platform for taking stock of CBR around the world and for engaging in deliberations to ensure its relevance in a post-2015 world in which the human rights and development agendas are closely linked.
  2. To recommend effective ways and means to build capacity in CBR.
  3. To facilitate dialogue among CBR practitioners, DPOs, civil society, government and academia about critical issues in CBR.

To achieve these objectives, there were three types of sessions:

PLENARY SESSIONS to acquire new knowledge and skills, and to reflect on how CBR contributes to the implementation of the CRPD and the post-2015 development framework with the aspiration of “leaving no-one behind”.

PARALLEL SESSIONS to share CBR good practice and lessons learned.

INTERACTIVE FORA to enable dialogue among CBR Congress participants (Government, DPOs, civil society, academia and CBR professionals), and to build consensus for meaningful Congress recommendations on CBR in the post- 2015 world.
