Nepal SDGs Forum organized meeting of associations and networks working on children's issues at the office of NGO Federation of Nepal at Buddhanagar on 23 February 2020 to discuss on the approach, framework and basic guidelines as well as further plan in order to hold consultations, collect information and provide inputs to the main civil society report on VNR. The participants have agreed to take the discussion on children ahead in coordination of the thematic committee.
For reporting of specific goals and thematic topics, a draft framework was discussed and will be further improved.
