Home Communication Disabilities and United Nations Goals
This International Communication Project (ICP) report, “The Importance of Speech, Language and Communication to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: A Summary of Evidence” [PDF], makes a solid case for addressing communication disabilities in order to meet three United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
- SDG #1: End all forms of poverty everywhere.
- SDG #2: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all.
- SDG #4: Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
