On 11-12 December 2018, EIFL participated in the first national workshop in
Cambodia to design a National Disability Strategic Plan (NDSP) 2019-2023.
The new plan, that aims to ensure inclusiveness and equality for people
living with disabilities, extends for another four years the existing plan
(2014-2018) that has benefited around 10,000 people.

Following the two-day workshop, that brought together the Royal Government
of Cambodia (RGC), the UN Development Programme (UNDP), development
partners, civil society, persons with disabilities and the private sector,
it was decided to include ratification of the Marrakesh Treaty for persons
with print disabilities in the plan’s Objective 8 “accessibility and access
to information”.
