The advocates guide to UN language

What is UN Language? Why it is important? And how to get involved in UN Language Advocacy.

“PP? OP?? BIS? TER?” WHAT?! With all of the different terms flying around, at times it really can feel like the United Nations (UN) has its own special language, and it can be difficult to break through all the confusing technical jargon. CHOICE for Youth & Sexuality has developed this guide on UN Language especially for youth advocates who are advocating for young people’s Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) in order to help them successfully navigate language advocacy at the UN. It explains what UN Language is, why it is important, and how to get involved in UN Language Advocacy.
