Reasonable Accommodations

New Zealand needs to make sure that progress is made on ensuring that disabled people are provided reasonable accommodations to participate, get easy access to services and information, and to have the same opportunities as all other New Zealanders.

Why the contribution is important

Reasonable accommodation is defined in the Convention as:

  • “…necessary and appropriate modification and adjustments not imposing a disproportionate or undue burden, where needed in a particular case, to ensure to persons with disabilities the enjoyment or exercise on an equal basis with others of all human rights and fundamental freedoms” (Article 2).
  • Reasonable accommodation can often cost very little or nothing at all. Because it is specific to a situation, what it looks like in practice can vary significantly.
