This Advocacy Toolkit aims to support efforts by mine action centres to advocate for the ratification and implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and its Optional Protocol. It explains how a Mine Action Centre can support the ratification and implementation process and shares tips on how to encourage the media to portray people with disabilities in a more accurate manner. It includes sample letters to government officials, urging them to ratify the Convention and a list of useful resources and websites.
