Building on BBI's work to advance physical education and disability sport both in the United States and globally, the team supported the Global Partnership on Children with Disabilities and, specifically, its thematic Working group on Physical Activity and Sport.  BBI's Janet Lord worked with Amy Farkas and Eli Wolff to develop a Thematic Paper on Physical Activity and Sport to advance disability inclusion in the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.

Later in the week, Deepti Raja Samant and Janet Lord will participate in a BBI co-sponsored event on Accessible ICTs with the World Bank and G3ict.
