At the end of September, the United Nations will formally adopt the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the goals and targets that will shape international development priorities for the next 15 years. The SDGs have the potential to change the face of the world within the next generation. It is critical that child marriage, a practice which affects 15 million girls a year with devastating consequences for their health, education and wellbeing, is addressed within the new framework. That is why we are thrilled that the proposed SDG framework includes a target to end child, early and forced marriage. The final outcome document “Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda For Global Action”, which was made public at the beginning of August and will be presented at the Summit in September, proposes target 5.3, ‘eliminate all harmful practices, such as child, early and forced marriage and female genital mutilations’, under goal 5 ‘Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls’.
India CSR summit is slated to organize on 7-8th October 2015 at Bengaluru. For more information click: www.ngobox.org
