Launch of Physical Accessibility Guidelines

Launch of Physical Accessibility Guidelines

Deputy Ambassador, Luke Arnold, attended the launch of the Physical Accessibility Standards for Persons with Disabilities in Cambodia. These standards, developed by the Ministry for Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation (MoSVY), the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction (MoLMUPC), and the Disability Action Council (DAC), provide technical guidance for builders, architects and designers to help them design and build a barrier- free environment for persons with disabilities. Our support for this event, including through our Australia-Cambodia Cooperation for Equitable and Sustainable Services program, is part of the Australian Government’s commitment to supporting equal access to public spaces and participation in civic life for persons with disabilities.
