Partnerships Officer in Tajikistan

Meet Manuchehr Rakhmonov, the Partnerships Officer in the Resident Coordinator’s Office in his own country, Tajikistan.  He is proud of his support to the UN Resident Coordinator in convening the UN country team on the implementation of the UN’s Disability Inclusion Strategy. He, together with a disability inclusion specialist in the office, coordinates the UN country team disability inclusion network, which led the conceptualization of a country-level action plan. This work has recently led to an audit of accessibility to inform the UN’s commitment to make UN premises and initiatives more accessible and inclusive for persons living with disabilities.  This is in full support of the Government’s ongoing efforts towards the ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, including the implementation of an accessible environment action plan, and created an opportunity for a joint training for the UN and government officials.  Manuchehr and the team is also working to facilitate integration of disability inclusion into UN country team’s Business Operations Strategy as well as into the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (2021-2025) for the work of UN country team to be truly inclusive, not to leave anyone behind.
