A major development since the sixty-eighth session of the Assembly has been the adoption of the outcome document of the high-level meeting of the General Assembly on the realization of the Millennium Development Goals and other internationally agreed development goals for persons with disabilities, in September 2013, which gives new impetus to the international community to follow a path of development that is inclusive of persons with disabilities.
The 2014 Report of the Secretary-General on the "Realization of the Millennium Development Goals and other internationally agreed development goals for persons with disabilities: a disability-inclusive development agenda towards 2015 and beyond" covers recent initiatives to include disability in development processes, based on information contributed by Governments and entities of the United Nations system, as well as other data available to the Secretariat. The report concludes with recommendations for strengthening efforts in key areas related to disability.
