In the last round of informal Habitat III negotiations preluding the Third Preparatory Committee (PrepCom3) , the UN Major Group for Children and Youth (UN MGCY) worked with member states to include key youth-relevant language into the New Urban Agenda (NUA) and spoke on issues concerning youth during in-session intervention and in meetings with the negotiation’s Co-Facilitators.
Through this engagement, the MGCY team furthered the NUA conversation regarding the environment, health, followup and review, and youth, while emphasizing the importance of youth involvement in the Habitat III process.
