This Report is composed of three main sections:

  • Social Indicators: The Zero Project Survey 2016–2017 consisted of 21 questions covering the most important themes of the UN CRPD, but with an additional focus this year on employment and vocational and educational training. After five years of Social Indicator research, for the first time data trends are published as well as comparisons between world regions. The Social Indicators section also includes analysis of data availability on youth employment with regards to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 8, and of the “data gap” of persons with disabilities living in institutions – another reference to the SDGs.
  • Innovative Practices: 56 Innovative Practices have been selected, and 13 common solutions and “threads” have been identified.
  • Innovative Policies: 11 Innovative Policies have been selected, and 13 ways to create a significant impact have been identified.
