13 - 15 June: 10th session of the Conference of States Parties to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
The 10th session of the Conference of States Parties to the CRPD (COSP10) will take place from 13 to 15 June 2017 at UN Headquarters in New York. The COSP has grown to be one of the world's largest and most diverse disability meetings. The main theme of COSP10 is: “The Second Decade of the CRPD: Inclusion and full participation of persons with disabilities and their representative organizations in the implementation of the Convention” along with three sub-themes.

A day prior to the opening of the main Conference, a Civil Society Forum will be organized by NGOs. Online registration for NGOs in Consultative Status with ECOSOC and for NGOs Accredited to the COSP is currently open (15 March to 2 June). Accreditation for new NGOs (1 April to 5 May) and the application for side-events (1 April to 15 May) is now also open. This year, opportunities for a free exhibit table will be available for Accredited NGOs and other stakeholders. More information is available on the UN Enable website at: http://bit.ly/crpd_cosp10.

Please note that due to logistical and other considerations, the approval of NGO participant registrations may be limited to those whose work is directly linked to the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development for persons with disabilities.
