Human Rights for Development –  Terre des Hommes signs a Joint Letter to Ban Ki-moon

Ahead of the 68th Session of the UN General Assembly, 67 organisations are signing a letter addressed to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. They reaffirm their demands on five key principles to shape the Post-2015 Development Agenda. Terre des Hommes is among the signatories.

As signatory of the CSOs Joint Letter on Post-2015, Terre des Hommes continues advocating for the Rights of the Child and Human Rights Based Approaches to Development as cornerstones of the Post-2015 Development Agenda.

The signatories of the letter reaffirm that States must fulfill with their obligations under International Human Rights Law as a one of the key principle for Development. Terre des Hommes has engaged since 2012 in the Post-2015 Development Agenda debate to promote – among others – a Child Rights and Human Rights-Based Approach of the Post-2015 Development Agenda. This is done in particular through the Civil Society Reflection Group on Global Development Perspectives and as member the Beyond 2015 Campaign European Task Force.
