Making gender equality a reality.

#SDGFinancing: Mobilizing Resources for the Implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals

Posted on April 19, 2017 by Women Thrive Alliance
 
On April 18, the High-Level SDG Financing Lab met to discuss how financing and resources are available for the successful implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Goal 5 (on gender equality) is a top priority for Women Thrive Alliance and our 264 members from over 50 countries.
 
Women Thrive used Storify to share highlights the event.

    Adequate financing for the #SDGs is crucial for successful implementation. As we're having these high-level conversations, Women Thrive wants to make sure that grassroots organizations have a voice in the process, and are part of the strategy to secure financing for the 2030 Agenda.

    As the private sector and governments come together to build partnerships that would increase resources for SDG implementation, it is important to raise the issue of the role of civil society organizations in this process. Civil Society plays an important role in keeping both governments and the private sector accountable, and should not be left out.

    Civil society is getting better and better at tracking the money and asking accountability #FfD #SDGFinancing #AchieveSDG5

    Global South and grassroots women and girls were not represented in these discussions. Including their perspectives on the financing of gender equality work on the ground is crucial, especially as we discuss the fact that the current financial system is not adapted to the promotion of equality and rights for all.
