OHCHR has developed a training package on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) and its Optional Protocol. The package consists of a Training Guide and eight modules.

The Training Guide seeks to provide basic information on a rights-based approach to disability, on the fundamental elements of the Convention and its Optional Protocol, and on the processes and issues underlying their ratification, implementation and monitoring.

The training modules can be used for developing training courses on the Convention and/or its Optional Protocol, but are also helpful as a general information resource on these two instruments.
