    negotiation, adoption, ratification and
    implementation of the International Convention on
    the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, in

Phuket Declaration, January 2007
In a knowledge-based society, ICT development,
which includes assistive technologies and
universal design concept, will contribute to the
success of disaster preparedness development that
will meet the diverse needs of all people
including those of persons with disabilities and
other vulnerable people including women,
children, old people, cultural minorities,
tourists, etc. in the community. Such ICT
development should be based on internationally-rec
ognized standards that are open, non-proprietary,
and have proven track record of accessibility.
