Colombo Declaration on Youth: Mainstreaming Youth in the Post-2015 Development Agenda

The Colombo Declaration is the outcome document from the World Conference on Youth, held May 5-10, 2014 in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The event marked the first time UN Member States sat alongside youth representatives to jointly negotiate a single outcome. The declaration is a bold and progressive outcome that explicitly calls on governments to fulfill young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights.
