Women and the SDGs: Partner Perspectives
Women and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have been discussed in the development community since the unanimous approval of the SDGs in September 2015. However, achieving the SDGs while ensuring we meet the needs of women and girls throughout the goals is a challenging task that can only be achieved through the creation of strategic partnerships among and between governments, civil society, and private sector institutions. In order to ensure the success and synergies of these partnerships, conversations are needed to understand the different perspectives and challenges each partner faces, and also explore what the SDGs really mean for women living in poverty around the world. The need for this discussion was evident from the standing-room-only turnout for the August 9 Women and the SDGs: Partner Perspectives event convened by Plan International USA and the Women in Public Service Project at the Wilson Center.
