Street Children’s Rights and the Sustainable Development Goals: OHCHR Submission
The 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent a global commitment to securing the rights of children in all countries. Reaching those children who are being left the furthest behind is a prerequisite for achieving the Goals overall. It is important that all countries include street children in their efforts to achieve the SDGs.
The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights will be providing a child rights report to inform global reviews of progress taking place in 2019 under the High Level Political Forum, the global body tasked with reviewing progress on the SDGs. Consortium for Street Children submitted this document in collaboration with its network members so that street children’s rights are considered within these reviews, ensuring that they are not left behind.
Child in Need Institute (CINI), a CSC network member, submitted a report focusing specifically on the challenges and best practices in India. You can read CINI’s submission here.
