More than one billion people, about 15% of the world’s population, live with some form of a disability. Sustainable development cannot be achieved without realizing disability-inclusive development, recognizing persons with disabilities as both agents and beneficiaries of development. The UN High-Level Meeting on Disability and Development (HLMDD) was held at the level of Heads of State and Government on September 23, 2013. The World Bank Tokyo Development Learning Center (TDLC), together with the WB Social Protection & Labor Unit, United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), and the United Nations University International Institute for Global Health (UNU/IIGH), developed a new knowledge sharing series “HLMDD Series”. In this Series, key focal points on disability from the World Bank, UN, JICA and an international NGO discussed highlights of the outcome document of HLMDD and the way forward.

The World Bank and Japan started the Project “Learning from Megadisasters” in October 2011. The project aims to share Japan’s knowledge on disaster risk management (DRM) and post disaster reconstruction with countries vulnerable to disasters. The project is collecting and analyzing information, data, and evaluations performed by academic and research institutions, nongovernmental organizations, government agencies, and the private sector. In this seminar, participants will discuss; 1) How is each organization sharing lessons from the GEJE with the World? 2) How can the country utilize these lessons to strengthen DRM? 3) How should Japan share the lessons from the GEJE with the world?
