Thematic Paper: Disability Inclusive Physical Activity and Sport in the Post 2015 Development Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals

GPcwd Task Force on Physical Activity and Sport • May 2015


As recognized by the UN General Assembly, physical activity and sport are vehicles that can facilitate
sustainable development, strengthen education, prevent disease, empower girls and women, and foster the
inclusion and well-being of people with disabilities.38 Persons with disabilities and their representative
organizations are integral to and essential participants in the post-2015 development agenda and the
formulation and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. Promoting inclusion and accessibility
in physical activity and sport for persons with disabilities opens up participation for all and thus advances health
and other human rights and peaceful societies.
