This firm was established in 2006 as an independent continental body to monitor development funding commitments, funding delivery as well as the impact on grassroots communities. Talso works towards bringing strong additional African voices to the development agenda. Their vision is of an African continent rapidly achieving its development potential, whose people live in dignity, in a just society where basic needs are met, human rights are upheld, and good governance entrenched.  The firm’s new strategic focus seeks to unlock the grassroots potential to be the drivers of African economic rejuvenation. In June 2012, the UN Millennium Campaign in collaboration with the UN Inter-Agency Network on Youth Development, the UN Non-Governmental Liaison Service, CIVICUS, GCAP and the Beyond 2015 campaign conducted a two day consultation meeting to coordinate and harmonize efforts to enhance children and youth’s participation in the post-2015 agenda. During the consultation, it was agreed that youth participation is fundamental for the post-2015 agenda and should be achieved through the use of new media, particularly crowd-sourcing, mobile technology, and radio campaigning.
