DPI, supported by ADD Bangladesh, organized a 3 day workshop in Dhaka, from 28th September to 30th September, 2012. The objective of the workshop was primarily to expose DPOs from Bangladesh to the concept of Universal Periodic Review (UPR) and to motivate them to submit a Stakeholders' Report on Disability for Bangladesh's upcoming UPR.

The workshop was attended by around 40 participants representing many DPOs. DPIs Chairperson, Javed Abidi and Human Rights Officer (HRO) Sherzodbek Sharipov were also present while Ellen Walker of IDA facilitated the workshop.
