High level Side Event

High level Side Event

Beyond the important goal of reducing infant mortality, early childhood development (ECD) was not a priority in 2000-2015 Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Sadly, ECD is virtually invisible in the first draft of the 2015-2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As time is running short, we need to advocate very strongly for including ECD on the post-2015 development agenda.
To promote global awareness of the importance of ECD and explore ideas for strategies to build political support, OMEP co-organised two high-level side events on 12 December, 2013 and 13 February, 2014. You can find the information below.
