IFHE Participation at UN 66th DPI/NGO Conference 2016

The UN DPI/NGO Conference Report

I would like to thank you and IFHE again to give me this wonderful opportunity to attend the 66th UN DPI/NGO Conference in Korea. I met Doona CHO (right on the photo) at the conference.

More than 2,500 people participated in the conference to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and there were four Conference roundtables and a fifth one organised by the national organising committee. Also the Conference hosted 45 workshops, 69 exhibitions and a series of youth-related events. 

A global education action agenda affirming the importance of Sustainable Development Goal 4 – ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong opportunities for all – was adopted in Gyeongju, Republic of Korea. The Gyeongju Action Plan provides concrete guidance for NGOs around the world to enhance their ability to lobby governments to commitment to implementing the Sustainable Development Goals and mobilise NGOs in communities on the ground (see below).

It was truly an amazing experience to meet people from around the world and share the idea of quality education with other NGOs. I hope IFHE can be more active for the next conference to represent our voices.

The eradication of hunger and extreme poverty emerge as possible Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the Post-2015 development era. Despite the progress made according to the MDGs achievement reports, around 780 million people in the developing countries still suffer from chronic hunger and over one billion persons are extremely poor and living on less than $1.25 per day.
