+World Population Day, July 11, Focus is on " Investing in Young People"

On 11 July, as communities everywhere observe World Population Day, +UNFPA is calling for investments in support of the largest-ever generation of youth.

Today’s 1.8 billion young people are shaping social and economic realities, challenging norms and values, and building the foundation of the world’s future. Yet too many young people continue to grapple with poverty, inequality and human rights violations that prevent them from reaching their personal and collective potential.
Safeguarding the rights of adolescents and youth and investing in their future is essential to their development and that of their families, communities and countries. Providing quality education, decent employment, effective livelihood skills and access to sexual and reproductive health, including comprehensive sexuality education, will ensure that every young person’s potential is fulfilled.

Thank You
To commemorate World Refugee Day this month, UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie paid her fourth visit to the refugee camps in northern Thailand.

At Ban Mai Nai Soi camp, she met three generations in the family of Baw Meh, a Karenni refugee who fled Myanmar's Kayah state in 1996.

The International Day of Cooperatives is observed each year on the first Saturday of July.  +WorldwatchInst 

Further highlights from the study:

° An estimated 7 percent of Africans belong to a co-operative, and their numbers are growing rapidly. The number of co-ops registered in Uganda, for example, grew 13-fold between 1995 and 2008—from 554 to nearly 7,500. Savings and credit co-operatives in particular are thriving in Africa.
° Co-ops can generate a meaningful share of economic output: 21 percent in Finland, 17.5 percent in New Zealand, 16.4 percent in Switzerland, and 13 percent in Sweden.
°In some countries, a sizable share of the population—up to 70 percent in Ireland—belongs to a co-operative of one sort or another.

Global Sustainable Development Report Building the Common Future We Want - Executive Summary (2nd version)
+United Nations Economic and Social Council-ECOSOC UN-DESA, 2014

The Rio+20 outcome document (paragraph 85k) calls for a Global Sustainable Development Report, in order to bring together dispersed information and existing assessments and to strengthen the science policy interface at the high-level political forum on sustainable development (HLPF).

The 2012 Secretary General’s High-level Panel on Global Sustainability had a similar proposal. Following Rio+20, the UN Secretary-General tasked the Division for Sustainable Development of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs to undertake "in-depth analysis and evaluation of trends and scientific analysis in the implementation of sustainable development, including lessons learned, best practices and new challenges, and cross-sectoral analysis of sustainable development issues".

It was decided to produce a “prototype” report that could illustrate a range of potential content, alternative approaches and various ways of participation. The prototype report will be useful in supporting Member States’ deliberations on the scope and methodology of future editions of the Global Sustainable Development Report. The report should ideally inform the agenda and deliberations of the HLPF, the General Assembly and ECOSOC on sustainable development.
