The EU Disability Strategy for 2010-2020 adopted in November 2010 aims at implementing the provisions of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities both at EU and at Member State level. One of its key actions identified for the 2010-2015 period is to increase the awareness of EU staff on disability matters. AETS’s task was to set up a training course on the inclusion of persons with disabilities in EU development cooperation for EC staff dealing with external relations and development cooperation in Headquarters and Delegations. The objective of the assignment was to raise awareness and improve the capacity of EU staff working on external action and development cooperation as regards the need to ensure that persons with disabilities exercise their fundamental rights and participate in and benefit from social and economic progress.
