The first mobile app of its kind, the CRPD app supports disability advocacy and participation in global governance by providing ready access to the structure and contents of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), the Optional Protocol, and its States Parties. It also provides information about the expert Committee on the CRPD, and on the Secretariat for the CRPD. The CRPD app commemorates the 10th anniversary of the CRPD and is an initial step towards a comprehensive mobile “CRPD Advocacy Toolkit” which aims to help advance the goal of universal ratification of the CRPD and implementation by States Parties. It is also designed to facilitate engagement with organizations and campaigns working on the CRPD, and to promote knowledge of related international frameworks.
This version of the CRPD app adds a new home screen, content on the CRPD Committee, active DPOs, App Advisory Board, additional navigation aids, and sponsor information.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
