Implementing the Sustainable Development Goals to Advance Women’s Rights and Gender Equality: An Advocacy Guide

By: WomanKind

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were agreed by UN Member States in September 2015 as the successor framework to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The SDGs are a new, universal set of goals, targets and indicators that UN member states will be expected to use to frame their agendas and political policies over the next 15 years (2015 – 2030).

This guide aims to equip women’s rights advocates with the tools and knowledge to ensure they can take full advantage of the opportunity that the SDGs offer to galvanise gender transformative change by 2030. It provides an overview of the commitments made, identifies key areas for action, and provides guidance on developing a tailored advocacy strategy.
