Girl Power! A Must on Post 2015 Agenda

Sport has over the last few decades grown in significance and recognition as a contributor to the Millennium Development Goals. However, the role of sport in widening spaces for girlsand young women to engage with political issues is still underutilised, and we want this to change.

 

As the world debates the future of the MDG development framework, we believe sport can contribute to engaging strategic parts of our society that are often marginalised, in the dialogue regarding the Post 2015 Agenda.

 

We are particularly interested in the voices of girls and young women as often, these are marginalised through processes that do not recognise their value and their perspectives and is in many cases unprepared to communicate with girls.

 

Last week the United Nations General Assembly affirmed the need to ensure participation of all stakeholders in developing the Post 2015 Agenda and girls are a major part of it as targets of interventions and as such should be part of the decision making.

 

His Excellency Mr. Michael Sata the President of Zambia in his address to the UN General Assembly said ‘Children’s issues including access to quality education, quality health care services at the right time, social protection and upholding rights of all children is critical’ should be a priority in the Post 2015 Agenda.

 

Further, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon remarked that the new agenda ‘…needs to be rights-based, with particular emphasis on women, young people, and marginalised groups’.
