Accelerating Gender Equality through the Post 2015 Development Agenda

September 1, 2016

It is now crucial for women’s organisations to form a clear position on the proposed SDGs and to advocate for certain problematic elements to be changed throughout the upcoming intergovernmental negotiations and for commendable elements to be safe-guarded against alteration and regression. It is essential that women’s organisations are aware of what still remains to be done and agreed upon in the Post-2015 Development Agenda process so that women and girls worldwide do not miss out on this invaluable opportunity to have their voices heard and their human rights enforced.

 

The Post-2015 Development Agenda is the global development framework which will guide the international development community for the next 15 years and was formulated by the United Nations in response to reaching the deadline for the realisation of the MDGs in 2015.
