DIAUD Network

The Global Network on Disability Inclusive and Accessible Urban Development (DIAUD) is a multistakeholder network focused on disability-inclusive contributions to the UN Habitat III process and the New Urban Agenda. It aims to build and enhance networking among persons with disabilities and disability rights advocates; policymakers and government officials; urban development professionals; academia; foundations; the private sector; and development cooperation partners.   

Established in partnership with the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs / Division of Social Policy and Development / Secretariat for the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, the DIAUD Network enables concerted disability-inclusive efforts to Habitat III through its multistakeholder partners working on both disability and urban development issues.

The DIAUD Network is supported by the Disability Inclusive Development (DID) Policy Collaboratory, an initiative of the Institute on Disability and Public Policy at American University and supported by The Nippon Foundation.
