The Working Group on Development, Environment, Agriculture, Governance & Democracy of the Global Issues Department of the International Youth Council (IYC) will commence the second Phase of its sitting in August. Our aim is to proffer recommendations which will reflect health, environmental management, education, food availability and solutions for hunger and reducing poverty, politics, macroeconomics, youth development, science and engineering, all aimed at helping countries meet up with envisions of the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
The recommendations will be made available in the official IYC Policy Journal. The journal serves as a reference point to consultants of the UN, its specialized agencies as well as a host of other agencies and countries all over the world.
If you are interested in serving as a Rapporteur and member of this Working Group, please send me a short 250-word letter of intent, describing your areas of interest (specific areas where you wish your contribution could make impact). Deadline for submission is July 31, 2013.
I look forward to hearing from you!!
