What does the ICPD have to do with Post-2015? Why is it important to recognize the Global Review in the next development agenda? Where do young people’s SRR come in?
In light of the 47th session of the Commission on Population and Development (CPD) on the “Assessment of the status of implementation of the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD),” the Youth Coalition for Sexual and Reproductive Rights (YCSRR) has launched its third Post-2015 brief, which addresses the important connections between young people’s sexual and reproductive rights, the ICPD and the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
The latest brief in the series highlights some of the important advances made within the last 15 years and the ways in which the Post-2015 Development Agenda must incorporate young people’s sexual and reproductive rights.
Including Youth in the Post-2015 Development Agenda: Youth Sexual and Reproductive Rights & the ICPD is the third in the peer reviewed series that will illuminate the connections between SRR and development issues that are central to youth and must be included in the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
Each brief includes important definitions, background information and recommendations.
