Next interview – 21st March 2016 / Gemma Pifarré, Head of the Catalan Government’s Department for the Promotion of Accessibility and Removal of Barriers

“The Accessibility Act is the legal framework based on which we must be able to cater for the inclusion of all people”

The head of accessibility policies in Catalonia is currently working on the implementation of a law that establishes minimum conditions so that public spaces, services, transport and communications are adapted for people with disability. The Act was unanimously approved by the Catalan Parliament in October 2014 and now the department headed by Gemma Pifarré is working on the decree that will implement it, in order to promote autonomy, equal opportunities and non-discrimination of people with functional diversity.
