QUESTION 2: How can the new sustainable development goals reflect child poverty?

Discussion by


Guiding questions for further consideration:

  1. How can the post-2015 development agenda track progress on the number of children who are poor at the national and global level?
  2. What specific goals and targets can you propose to ensure that the new development framework ends child poverty?
  3. How can the goal of eradicating extreme monetary poverty ($1.25 a day) be used to reflect and prioritise children? How can other dimensions of child poverty be reflected to complement these monetary measures?

Second Round of UNDG Consultation–How Should We Include Participatory Monitoring in the Post-2015 Development Agenda? 14 Apr 2014 | Addressing Inequalities: Article by

Dear AINA Members,

The continuation of an inclusive dialogue on Post-2015 is a key mandate given to the UN by its Members States as well as UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. As the Post-2015 Development Agenda process moves into its next phase, we seek to build on the outcomes of the first round of consultations (held in 2012-2013), to ensure the inclusion of a wider range of voices and approaches in the Post-2015 Development Agenda process.

Themes that have consistently emerged from the consultations and Post-2015 discussions—particularly in previous AINA discussions—are the concepts of “inclusion” and “participation” and the importance of including previous marginalized voices in the design, implementation, monitoring and accountability mechanisms for development processes.

To that end, UNICEF, UN Women and UNDP—with support from the Governments of Canada, Peru and the Republic of Korea are co-organizing a global thematic consultation on Participatory Monitoring for Accountability—and how best to include participatory approaches in the Post-2015 Development Agenda. Firstly, we are conducting an e-discussion on the topic of Participatory Monitoring for Accountability starting 14 April 2014, which can be found on the site dedicated to this initiative:

Best, Tricia Callender Manager, Participatory Monitoring for Accountability Consultation email:

The online consultation will run from 14 April -2 May 2014 focused on three questions specific to participation in the Post-2015 Agenda. We strongly encourage your participation and we invite you to make your voice heard!

Secondly, another key part of the consultation will be the collection of good practices and lessons learned from participatory approaches across the globe. Individuals, academics, policy experts, and organizations are invited to submit proposals of either Case Studies or Methodologies in relation to Participatory Monitoring approaches.

Please see here for information on paper proposal submission:

Please note we are seeking practical examples (not theoretical papers) of methods that have be implemented successfully. Additionally, only paper proposals that follow the given template will be considered. (Link to template here:

Please also note the deadline for submissions will be 2 May and we are not able to offer extensions on this. Again, we are anxious to hear and learn from your direct experiences with participation and seek your guidance on how we include it in the Post-2015 agenda.

The outcomes of the consultation will be fed into Open Working Group for Sustainable Development Goals decision-making discussions, the Secretary-General’s synthesis report and other key Post-2015 key policy discussions and processes. We hope that you are able to participate in these opportunities and we look forward to learning from you and your experience with participation as an effective development approach.

UN CC:Learn Releases Guidance on Climate Change Learning Strategies  

25 February 2014:

The One UN Training Services Platform on Climate Change, UN CC:Learn, has published a ‘Guidance Note for Developing a National Climate Change Learning Strategy,’ which aims to provide methodological and organizational guidance to countries that wish to develop national climate change learning strategies.


The guidance note is based on the 2011-2013 pilot implementation phase of the UN CC:Learn’s programme to ‘Strengthen Human Resources, Learning and Skills Development’ and builds on five national UN CC:Learn projects to ‘Strengthen Human Resource Capacities and Skills to Address Climate Change.’


Over 50 countries have expressed interest in developing a national climate change learning strategy. In addition, the Doha Work Programme of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) mandates countries to prepare national strategies on UNFCCC Article 6 (education, training and public awareness).


The note is divided into three main sections which: explain the purpose and objectives of a climate change learning strategy; outline the main steps in developing a climate change learning strategy; and contain a practical guide for developing a national climate change learning strategy, including suggestions for specific activities, as well as logistical and organizational considerations.


UN CC:Learn is a One UN partnership involving 33 organizations that supports countries in designing and implementing results-oriented and sustainable learning to address climate change. The Secretariat for UN CC:Learn is hosted by the UN Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).
