February 2, 2022



First ESF Dialogue Series on Accessibility

The World Bank Environmental and Social Framework Dialogue Series

This is an overview of the World Bank’s work on disability inclusion with concrete examples of how it has made a difference in the lives of persons with disabilities, and the importance of inculcating disability inclusion in conversations with clients with the aim of not only building awareness to disability inclusive development and ensuring that no one is left behind. The engagement highlighted various mechanisms and tools available to operationalize disability inclusion and accessibility in World Bank projects.

Sign language interpretation and captioning included in the video.



This event is part of the World Bank's Environmental and Social Framework (ESF) Dialogue Series which provides an opportunity to explore the most pertinent ESF-related issues and challenges, while strengthening collaboration and partnerships with diverse stakeholders from across the world. The series provides an opportunity for technical experts to share information and obtain feedback from stakeholders on the opportunities and challenges in their work. It also enables peers to share insights on solutions that could be adapted across countries.
