A Post-2015 framework for children

SOS Children's Villages worked nationally and internationally for a post-2015 global development agenda with child rights and welfare at its centre.

What is Post-2015?

In September 2000, the member states of the United Nations (UN) committed to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015. As the 2015 deadline for the MDGs approached, UN member states worked together to draw up new global development goals for the next 15 years a process that culminated in the adoption in September 2015 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The global political process leading up to the adoption of the SDGs is known as the Post-2015 process.

How was SOS Children´s Villages involved?

SOS Children's Villages was an active partner in the Post-2015 process. Drawing on evidence from our six decades of working with children who have lost parental care, and with families at risk of separation, we fought to increase understanding of the causes of family breakdown and child neglect, abandonment and abuse. Through these efforts, working at national and international levels with our partners, we influenced decision-makers to address the needs and rights of all children in the Post-2015 targets, otherwise known as the SDGs.
