The concept note of the International Committee October 17 is ready. It is the result of a consultation carried out in February with the Forum on Overcoming Extreme Poverty network. This consultation enabled us to prepare the theme of the Day. The concept note is an advocacy tool. It provides a basis for understanding the theme of this year’s 17 October: Ending Social and Institutional Maltreatment. It takes up the strong words and key ideas shared during the consultation. It is also very useful for preparing to celebrate the Day. Feel free to share it with others!
