South Asia youth media stunt urges global leaders to act quickly in designing post 2015 development goals

NGO News Desk ::  South Asian youth demanded that, the Global Leaders must consider the latest scientific facts to be released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), while designing the Post-2015 Development Agenda and agreeing the Climate Change Agreement in 2015. The demand came from a media stunt performed by the representatives from different countries of South Asia in front of Noakhali Press Club on 27 September.
The innovative demonstration took place as a part of a three-day South Asia Youth Camp on Climate, Agriculture and Water that started on 26 September in Noakhali. Almost 80 young people from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka are participating in the camp.
Oxfam’s food justice campaign GROW, in association with Participatory Research Action Network –PRAN, Humanity Watch, Online Knowledge Society and Campaign for Sustainable Rural Livelihood (CSRL), is organizing the camp with an aim to support youth movements to ensure rights of smallholders and women producers in South Asia.
