Tracking Progress Towards 2030: Young people driving accountability for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has established an ambitious action plan to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, promote peaceful and inclusive societies, and to tackle climate change. Measuring the success of its implementation requires a renewed and strengthened global partnership to monitor progress. Young people’s meaningful engagement in accountability mechanisms is critical to ensure that their needs will be properly addressed and that their rights will be realized.
The global ACT!2015 meeting: Tracking Progress Towards 2030 held in Lusaka, Zambia from 7-11 December 2015, brought together youth representatives of national alliances to build capacity on Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) and indicator processes to ensure indicators on sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and HIV are adopted in country and global reporting mechanisms.
