The UN also encourage and expect public and private organisations to collaboratively find solutions to make the world a more accessible and equal place for people with disabilities. 

The UN create an annual theme for the day which is ‘Transformative solutions for inclusive development: the role of innovation in fuelling an accessible and equitable world’ this year.

The main areas discussed in the meeting will be:
