Hello Shadi and all,
Very clear new draft! Good work!
It will be easy to promote and translate!
I have some small comments:

1. I have one concern with the following sentence which may be 
complicated. I don't remember if it was in the former draft.
"Note: Accessibility should not be left until the evaluation stage; it 
should be integrated from the
beginning and throughout the project lifecycle — in planning, design, 
and development".
The first part may be negative.
Proposal: "Note: Accessibility should be integrated from the
beginning and throughout the project lifecycle — in planning, design, 
and development".
Reason: if you want to take evaluation into account, an evaluation stage 
should be there, but this stage should be present during the whole process.

2. In "who WCAG-EM" is for, I don't understand following sentence, may 
be a word missing:
"To successfully follow the methodology in WCAG-EM requires knowledge of 
WCAG 2.0, accessible web design, assistive technologies, and how people 
with different disabilities use the Web (as described in the WCAG-EM 
Required Expertise section)".

3. In "who develops WCAG-EM", there seems to be repeated words in the 
following sentence:
"The Working Groups are part of the part of the World Wide Web 
Consortium (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)".
did you mean:
"The Working Groups are part of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web 
Accessibility Initiative (WAI)".
Best and have nice meetings!
Sylvie
