As Qatar aspires to build a fully connected society, one of the key issues identified is digital access to people with disabilities.

Based on a vision of ICT4ALL, Mada (Qatar Assistive Technology Center) will host a one day seminar on November 8, 2010 at Al Sharq Village & Spa, 9 a.m., to discuss the main issues and challenges involved in building a barrier free ICT ecosystem.

The event features Axel Leblois, Executive Director, G3ict, the Global Initiative for Inclusive Information and Communication Technologies, a flagship advocacy initiative of UN-GAID, the United Nations Global Alliance for ICT and Development. The seminar will also include a panel discussion featuring key stakeholders on roles and responsibilities in building a fully accessible ICT environment within Qatar.
