Mobilising and advocating for the fulfillment of human rights commitments

Seminar on Understanding the ICESCR and the MDGs

The Community Law Centre, Black Sash, People’s Health Movement South Africa, National Welfare Social Service and Development Forum, and the Global Call to Action against Poverty South Africa organised a seminar on understanding the International Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

The aims of the seminar were:

  • Forster awareness of the ICESCR and the MDGs and South Africa’s compliance with its reporting obligations in terms of the MDGs;
  • Establish the link between ratification of the ICESCR and meeting the MDGs; and
  • Integrate the ICESCR and the MDGs in local/community-based programmes.
