Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The CSD Youth Caucus is an international network of over 2,000 youth leaders from hundreds of individuals and organisations, many of which are themselves national networks, that brings together young people with a desire to build a more sustainable world. The focus of the caucus is two-fold. First, to facilitate youth input into the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development, the primary international forum concerned with issues of Sustainability, and secondly to foster information sharing and communication between a diverse network of youth organisations who share a common interest in sustainability. www.yoen.org
The Youth Caucus is calling for inputs from youth in Africa on it 4th Implementation Cycle: Review Session (UN CSD 18).
As a Review year, the session will focus on the following thematic issues:
 4.  Mining
5.  10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns http://www.un.org/esa/dsd/dsd_aofw_scpp/scpp_tenyearframprog.shtml .
The kind of inputs that we are looking for are:
-          Case studies
-          Policy research and other conducted researches related to the topics
-          Regional needs/challenges which include local, national, regional needs. eg needs for education, etc with a focus on principles and rights such as right to health, education, etc.
