EIFL gives input into high-level national briefing to raise awareness about
the Marrakesh Treaty in Cambodia

Over 230 government officials, representatives of disabled people’s
organizations and national and international non-governmental agencies in
Cambodia have received a briefing on the Marrakesh Treaty for blind,
visually impaired and otherwise print disabled people.

The briefing - the first presentation of the Marrakesh Treaty at a national
meeting of key stakeholders in Cambodia - aimed to raise awareness about
the Treaty, to set the stage for further discussion, and to encourage
ratification. It took place during a plenary session of the National
Workshop on Monitoring Implementation of the National Disability Strategy
Plans 2014 -2018, held on 23 - 24 August 2017 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s
capital city.

An Issue Brief
prepared by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in partnership
with EIFL, the World Blind Union and the Association of the Blind in
Cambodia, was distributed to stakeholders in English and Khmer, and in
braille and audio formats.
