DPO Shadow Report and the Briefing for the Minister

This report informed the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (alongside the report from the New Zealand Government) as it examined New Zealand’s progress in implementing the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The DPOs network jointly prepared a briefing to the incoming Minister for Disability Issues, Hon. Nicky Wagner, November 2014. This document aims to extend the working partnership between the Government and DPOs and reinforces the DPO’s priority areas for action. In the document, Green priorities are currently being addressed by government, orange priorities are those being partly addressed by government, and red priorities are those not yet being addressed by government.
