Advocacy 2017-09-15T15:03:17+00:00

We  advocate for stronger commitments to gender equality and women’s human rights within the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); towards a gender just future. We advocate on the local, regional and international level for a bottom-up approach to the SDGs. Meaning, what is happening on the local level should dictate the dialogue on the global level: “global goals, local actions”.

 

Our advocacy work exists of

  • Capacity-building & meaningful public participation of women
  • Shadow reporting
  • An online gender & SDGs monitoring tool
