RIATT-ESA and some of the world’s leading children’s organization are calling on the UN to ensure that children are counted and well represented in the global sustainable development goals.
In a joint open letter to the Inter-Agency Expert Group, children’s NGOs and leading disability-rights organizations, have appealed to the UN to ensure that “children living outside of households and/or without parental care” are included in the monitoring framework.
This Joint letter to the UN Statistical Commission and Inter‐Agency Expert Group on SDG Indicators recommends the following:
- Ensure that children living outside of households and/or without parental care are represented in disaggregated data.
- Improve and expand data collection methodologies to ensure all children are represented.
