The Zero Project was initiated by the Essl Foundation in 2011 with the mission to support the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD) and to work for a world without barriers.
The Zero Project Social Indicators measure the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD). This year 126 experts from 105 countries have
completed the questionnaire, with a particular focus on accessibility. The results show some significant
differences between world regions in the current implementation of the Convention.
For 2018 the Zero Project selected 68 Innovative Practices that positively impact the rights of persons with disabilities in their ability to access, tackling a variety of challenges and using several very different approaches.
