The Nordic countries have a long and proud tradition of cooperation, shared visions and inclusive societies. This is often evident in the international development arena. After the Global Disability Summit in London, July 2018, Nordic disability organisations saw that both governments, agencies, and organizations have a unique opportunity of doing more to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs), by putting more emphasis on Leaving No One Behind (LNOB).

With this in mind, this report was created to assess the current policies of our governments on international disability issues. In what way can the Global Disability Summit in London help strengthen the SDGs and LNOB agenda? Have the governments understood that the SDGs require a new focus on inclusion? This report hopes to strengthen the cooperation between civil society organisations and the governments of our respective countries in order to fulfill the ambitious 2030 agenda.
