Towards an e-accessible Arab region

Given the important role of digital accessibility in building inclusive digital societies and environments in the Arab region, ESCWA and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) organized the second edition of the “Accessible Arab Region: ICT for All”.
 
The conference, held on 13 December, aimed at raising awareness, exchanging good practices and challenges, and encouraging regional engagement in prioritizing digital accessibility.
