OHCHR Call for Inputs to report on Children’s Rights and the 2030 Agenda

Deadline: 31 May 2017

In a recent resolution of the Human Rights Council, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) was requested to provide input from a children’s rights perspective to the global review process of the High Level Political Forum on sustainable development (HLPF). The HLPF is the central UN platform for follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda, and conducts annual reviews of progress towards its implementation based on voluntary national reviews and multi-stakeholder inputs. The 2017 global review process will take place in New York from 10-19 July.

To inform its written input, the OHCHR is drawing on broad consultation including with civil society. This presents an important opportunity for members to offer their expertise in order to help strengthen children's rights in the agenda of the HLPF.

The timeframe is tight and we therefore suggest using existing relevant materials (including from your members) to send a written input. The OHCHR has suggested that concrete country-specific examples of good practice in relation children’s rights and the SDGs under review (see call for written inputs) would be particularly helpful.

The call for written inputs provides further information on the thematic report and guidelines for submission. The deadline for inputs is 31 May 2017.

This is the first time that the OHCHR is providing input on children's rights to the HLPF and is the start of an annual process. Child Rights Connect will be reaching out to members in due course to discuss how the network can approach this process in a systematic and ongoing manner.
