The International NGO Day on Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) was attended by more than 250 civil society, NGOs and UN worldwide representatives. Vito Bumbaca from the ISS General Secretariat focused his intervention on the added value of cross border social services for individuals in need. In addition, training of concerned professionals is paramount to strengthen "the provision of access to justice for all, and building effective, accountable institutions at all levels." (SDG 16).
This meeting was also an opportunity to give an overview on ISS current initiatives, partnerships and support to child protection competent authorities through its global network.
