Proposal : Proposal on SDGs by the UNCSD Major Group for Children and Youth

Summary : This proposal is the result of an exercise that the UNCSD Major Group of Children and Youth (MGCY) promoted among its constituency to provide guidance to Member States on the process to develop the post-2015 framework. The goals included in the proposal are based on existing international agreements and obligations. Key recommendations include: - The SDGs framework should tackle the underlying drivers of social injustice and environmental degradation, considering links between poverty, gender inequality, climate change, biological diversity, and human rights’ protection. - The SDGs framework must promote synergy with the MDGs. In 2015, when the MDGs expire the SDGs and post-MDG framework must be incorporated together. We cannot have two sets of goals. - The agreement on SDGs should be universal. - The SDGs must be deliberated through an open, transparent, and accountable process in the form of a global consultation of all stakeholders, including young people. - The SDGs must build from the Rio Principles, Agenda 21, and the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation so as to be an overarching set of goals.
