Save the Children Takes part in the National Consultation Held by Niti Aayog

One-fifth of the global population of children (that is human beings under 18 years of age) live in India, so it is extremely important for us to prioritize the rights children here so that the world is able to achieve SDGs. Working on these lines, India will present its second Voluntary National Review (VNR) Report on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the UN- High-Level Political Forum 2020. NITI Ayog is coordinating the preparation of this report. In the process of preparing the report, children were identified as an important vulnerable group under Niti Aayog’s initiative of LNOB (Leave No One Behind), and consequently, a National Consultation was organized by focused child agencies to review the progress of SDGs directly.
