Locking in Accountability to Adolescents under the SDGs

In 2017, its second year of operation, the IAP made a strategic decision to bring the attention of policy-makers to one group at considerable risk of being left behind on the roadmap to 2030: girls and boys 10-19 years old. This population is 1.2 billion strong, representing 1 in 6 people globally.

The IAP’s report on Transformative Accountability for Adolescents was the first to ever assess the state of global accountability to adolescents’ health and rights. It was launched at a high-level event co-hosted by the Governments of Denmark and South Africa during the United Nations’ General Assembly in New York in September. The IAP report was highlighted as one of seven top highlights of EWEC in 2017.
