Children and Youth Working Group
87% of the population in developing countries is under 25. However, children and youth face significant barriers to participation in national, regional and global policy processes. Civil society organisations that are led by / focus on / serve children and young people can play a significant role in ensuring that children and youth have a voice in the post-2015 agenda, in both formal and informal consultation processes.
The Children and Youth Working Group was established in August 2012 and had the core mandate of:
- Improving coordination and information sharing amongst organisations engaging in the post-MDG process that were led by / focused on / served children and young people
- In time, developing children and youth position(s) on the post-2015 agenda, to feed into and build on positions developed elsewhere as part of the Beyond 2015 Campaign
