Selamat Pagi,
Atas nama UNESCO, saya sangat senang sekali dapat kembali menyambut
anda semua pada Pertemuan Tingkat Tinggi Walikota untuk Kota Inklusif
yang keempat. Saya mengucapkan terimakasih kepada para perwakilan dari
pemerintah kota serta organisasi penyandang disabilitas yang hari ini
berada disini, terimakasih juga saya ucapkan khusus kepada mereka yang
telah menempuh perjalanan jauh untuk bergabung bersama kami hari ini.
Kotmitmen yang anda tunjukkan melalui kehadiran anda semua disini
1 merupakan langkah penting untuk mempromosikan dan meningkatan hakhak penyandang disabilitas di Indonesia.
Terimakasih kepada Bapak Gubernur I Made Mangku Pastika yang telah
hadir pada pertemuan ini dan telah memberikan dukungan kepada
penyandang disabilitas. Tak lupa saya ucapkan terimakasih kepada Bapak
Walikota yang telah menjadi tuan rumah pertemuan ini dan memimpin
usaha promosi hak-hak penyandang disabilitas di Indonesia.
I am pleased to announce that Denpasar will be the next host of UNESCO
inter-municipal training on the United Nations Convention of the Rights of
Persons with Disabilities. This will not only increase the capacity of both
DPOs and government officials but will also provide opportunity to
strengthen cooperation between municipalities.
I am glad to hear that municipalities from different regions in Indonesia are
interested to be involved in this initiative.
I must say we are working in the right direction and I am sure that with
your support a ‘Network of Inclusive Cities’ that will be established with
support of UNESCO will be able to provide a platform for sharing best
2 practices regarding the design and implementation of policy initiatives for
the inclusion of disabled people.
As you already know, in our previous meetings in Yogyakarta, Banda
Aceh, Banjarmasin, and Metro-Lampung we have discussed among others
the challenges and opportunities for the fulfilment of the rights of disabled
people in areas such as education, participation in social and political life
and the role of ICTs. Today, we will explore the role of budgeting for
disability in improving the life of disabled people.
UNESCO is proud to support this commendable initiative and our meeting
today testifies to your commitment to make our cause your own. It is a
marvellous sight to see Mayors, Vice-Mayors and Officials from all across
Indonesia collaborating and taking a proactive stance when it comes to the
defence of the rights of disabled people. With your help, we can erase the
barriers that prevent people living with disabilities from meaningfully
contributing to the life of his or her community
The lives of many citizens of Indonesia who are affected by mental or
physical disabilities can improve dramatically.
3 Ladies and Gentlemen, We have already started to make a difference. In
2013 UNESCO has successfully supported capacity building of Disabled
People Organisations and government officials from various regions of
Indonesia: from Ambon to Banda Aceh, from Banjarmasin to Yogyakarta
and Metro. As a result, Banjarmasin has initiated the establishment of an
action plan for inclusive city and I believe more municipalities will follow
Banjarmasin. The action plan is important to not only show commitment
from the government to promote and fulfil the rights of people with
disability but also secure the budget for inclusive cities. UNESCO is now
looking forward to work closely not only with Municipality of Denpasar,
but also with the other municipalities in conducting similar initiative.
UNESCO is privileged to work with you and cherishes your active
contributions.
Today, we also look forward to the positive engagement of DPOs. We look
forward to the increased involvement of DPO leaders in advising policies at
the local government level, and expect to see DPOs-led initiatives on social
inclusion particularly in education and participation in social and political
life being supported in different regions of Indonesia.
4 We have a lot of work ahead of us, and in the coming months and years,
your support will be essential for the full implementation of the UNCRPD
across Indonesia.
Bapak Ibu Sekalian,
