In the 15 years’ time frame of implementing Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), the youth of today will still remain fledgling but with better skills, insight, and aspiration. The youths are the major beneficiaries and key stakeholders of the Agenda 2030. Hence, the potential of the youth needs to be valued supported by appropriate policies and their implementation for achieving SDGs.
There is a need to formulate appropriate policy framework and develop specific action plan accordingly to ensure the inclusion of marginalised and vulnerable groups of the society in the development process in a move to attain the core aspiration of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – ‘Leave No One Behind (LNOB)’.
The “Citizen’s Conference on SDGs in Bangladesh 2017” is going to be held in Dhaka on 6 December 2017 with the slogan No One will be Left Behind. The daylong Conference will be organised by the Citizen’s Platform for SDGs, Bangladesh.
Effective partnerships between government and non-government organisations (GO-NGO) built on trust, mutual respect and support will help achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Bangladesh.
