The World Health Organization estimates that 15 per cent of the world’s population has a disability, and in developing countries, the exclusion of people with disabilities from the labour market can significantly decrease their Gross Domestic Product (GDP).That is why more than 150 Bangladeshi factories have signed up to ‘go inclusive.’
The number of people around the globe living with disabilities is estimated at 1 billion. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) that’s about 15 per cent of the earth’s human population that is entitled to the same access to tourist sites, hotels, facilities and services as everyone else. Therefore, there needs to be a plan to create welcoming tourism destinations for everyone.
According to the World Health Organization there are around one billion people living with a disability worldwide, that’s about one in five people in the Western World. Everyday new technologies are being developed that make a positive contribution not only to the lives of people with a disability, but also the broader community.
