Abu Dhabi's DCD signs 'Cities4All' to make cities accessible for PoD

Abu Dhabi’s Department of Community Development (DCD) has signed the Global Compact on Inclusive & Accessible Cities "Cities4All (C4All)" agreement at the World Urban Forum Stakeholders Roundtable on Persons with Disabilities.

The chairman of the DCD, Dr Mugheer Khamis Al Khaili, said that signing this compact is a step towards motivating cities to becoming more inclusive and accessible for People of Determination by focusing on non-discrimination, accessibility, participation, inclusive policies, capacity building, and data for development.

Al Khaili pointed out that the DCD will work toward providing a dignified life for everyone who calls Abu Dhabi their home, in line with its role to regulate, empower, and monitor the social and community development sector in the emirate, according to state news agency, Wam.

During the first panel of the roundtable meetings, the advisor to the Chairman at DCD, Dr Bushra Al Mulla, discussed efforts taken by the Abu Dhabi government to ensure providing a sustainable, supportive, and inclusive environment for People of Determination.

She spoke about removing all barriers and obstacles in their way, and granting them their rights through drawing up inclusive policies and legislation, as well as investing in innovative and equitable programs that empower People of Determination.
