Good Shepherd Statement to the Commission for Social Development

States have opportunities for real leadership in facilitating a global paradigm shift through the incorporation of the guiding principles on extreme poverty and human rights into national laws, policies and programmes and the implementation of ILO recommendation 202 on national floors of social protection.

We support the Commission towards this end.   Read the full Good Shepherd Statement to the Commission for Social Development – available in the 6 languages of the United Nations.  ngocsocd2012
