Framework Convention between CNDH and the Collective for the Promotion of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

Ms. Amina Bouayach, President of the National Human Rights Council (CNDH) and Ms. Soumia Amrani, Vice-President of the Collective for the Promotion of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in Morocco, signed a cooperation and partnership agreement aiming at promoting the rights of persons with disabilities, on Thursday 15 April 2021, at the CNDH’s headquarters in Rabat, Morocco.

On this occasion, Ms. Bouayach highlighted that signing this agreement is part of the CNDH’s strategy based on the effectiveness of human rights in the field of promoting and protecting the rights of persons with disabilities.

This strategy is based on strengthening the legislative and procedural aspects by integrating all institutional and non-institutional actors, including NGOs working in the field of promoting the rights of persons with disabilities.

CNDH Chairperson also shed light on the role of the National Mechanism for the Protection of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, especially its missions related to reviewing the provisions related to legal capacity.

This National Mechanism was established at the CNDH in line with Law NO. 76-15.

For her part, Ms. Amrani stated that this agreement is an opportunity to invest in the achievement of the joint cooperation to realize the effectiveness of the rights of persons with disabilities. Example: strengthening actions related to current issues such as political participation of persons with disabilities, the rights of women with disabilities, social protection, the right to inclusive education and the right to legal capacity as a basis for the effectiveness of rights.

This agreement aims to establish mechanisms for cooperation between the CNDH and the Collective, by elaborating and implementing joint programs and projects related to the rights of persons with disabilities to ensure the effectiveness of their rights in line with international and national human rights standards.
