EIFL is to take part in the first national workshop in Cambodia to design a National Disability Strategic Plan (NDSP) 2019-2023. The new plan aims to ensure inclusiveness and equality for people living with disabilities in Cambodia.

The two-day workshop will bring together the Royal Government of Cambodia, the UN Development Programme (UNDP), development partners, civil society, persons with disabilities and the private sector.

Wanna Net, EIFL’s Copyright Coordinator in Cambodia, is to give a presentation on how the Marrakesh Treaty for persons with print disabilities presents opportunities for libraries to increase access to books in accessible formats for print-disabled people. EIFL supports ratification of the Marrakesh Treaty in partner countries and implementation of the treaty into national law.
