#withSyria

GCAP has joined with more than 110 other civil society networks and organisations to call for a peaceful resolution to the violence in Syria.

Three years after a brutal crackdown and civil war have forced 9 million Syrians - some 40% of the country's population - from their homes and killed at least 100,000 more, civil society activists across the globe held #withSyria peace vigils to show their support for the Syrian people.

From Za'atari - the largest Syrian refugee camp in Jordan - to New York, Khartoum, Hong Kong, Nairobi, Melbourne and London's Trafalgar Square, people lit candles, uploaded photos and released red balloons, a symbol of 'There is Always Hope' popularised by the British graffiti artist, Banksy.

Leave No One Behind! Initial GCAP Response to the UN Post-2015 High Level Panel Report

Following ten months of discussion and consultations, the UN High Level Panel on Post-2015 (HLP) has presented its vision and recommendations for a new global development framework that will take effect when the Millennium Development Goals expire in two and a half years.  In this article, GCAP presents its initial assessment of what the UN High Level Panel on Post-2015 got right and what needs to be improved. This statement is being submitted to several UN agencies, including the UN Secretary-General's office, the High Level Panel on Post-2015 and the UN Millennium Campaign. GCAP National Coalitions and Constituency Groups are also petitioning their national governments for action on these issues.
