  • 中央アジア障害者団体(DPO)のネットワークを強化する、
  • 新アジア太平洋障害者の十年を推進する、
  • 中央アジア障害者フォーラムの活動・連携を促進する、
  • JICA中央アジア研修の研修員を交えて、小地域ネットワークの意義とあるべき姿を討議する。

On November 13 (Wed) there was a 2 hours JICA TV conferenceabout “Mainstreaming and Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities in Central Asian Countries”. The purposes of the conference were;
  • to strengthen the network of Central Asian Disabled People’sOrganizations (DPOs); 
  • to promote the new Asia-Pacific Decade of Disabled Persons; 
  • to disseminate the Central Asia Disability Forum;
  • to discuss the future perspective of sub-regional network with the trainees of JICA Central Asia Training program.

The representatives of Uzbekistan’s various DPOs participated in the TV conference

UNESCAPの秋山愛子さんは。アジア太平洋地域障害者の第三の十年「インチョン戦略」のサブ地域ネットワークの重要性について話しました「Make the Right Real」が合言葉です。そして、DPIアジア太平洋ブロック事務局長サワラックさんはネットワーク強化のためのDPOのアプローチについて発表しました。

Ms. Aiko Akiyama from UNESCAP talked about the importance of sub-regional network in Incheon strategy to “Make the Right Real” for Persons with Disabilities in Asia and the Pacific”. Then Disabled Peoples’ International (DPI) Asia-Pacific Regional Block Secretary General Ms. Saowalak did a presentation about “DPO’s approach to reinforce Network Reinforcement”.

People from Uzbek DPOs had a lot of questions.


I think, that Central Asian DPOs first should think about reinforcing their national networks at the country-level, and then proceed to strengthening the Central Asian regional network of DPOs. For instance, national DPOs should coordinate their activities among each other, and form some kind of a coalition in order to be considered as a potential candidate for the membership to DPI. Admittedly, DPOs of Uzbekistan have started this process and are on their thorny way to DPI membership.
