Members of the Democratic Youth Program from the 4 Thai regions will discuss issues and challenges related to the SDGs with members of the House of Representatives.


The United Nations Develpment Programme (UNDP) formally signed Memoranda of Understandings (MOUs) with both teh Secretariat of the House of Representatives and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) Thailand. The main objective is to enhance awareness and capacities of parliamentarians and parliamentary staff to play a significant role in implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Thailand and achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.


UNDP, in collaboration with the Secretariat of the HOuse of Representatives and KAS, is launching the "Youth and MPs for the SDGs Programme" to promote youth engagement and the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals with the parliamentarians at the national and subnational levels. The Programme will invite youth from four regions of Thailand to present SDGs related issues using a human-centered design and help them identify solutions to work with the Thai Parliament to address these issues with a view to achieve sustainable development in Thailand, including ensuring no one is left behind. Youth representatives will use the content of the sub-national hearing reports produced during the Democratic Youth Programme.
