Will You Deliver on the Promise of the SDGs? Will You Deliver for Girls and Women? Will You Deliver for Good?

Are you working to implement the new Sustainable Development Goals so they matter most for girls and women? Are you trying to figure out where to start? Do you need evidence and case studies to help determine priorities for funding, programming, and policy development to support your work? Then check out the 12 new Deliver for Good policy briefs drafted by Women Deliver and partners on topics ranging from reproductive health, access to water and sanitation, education, and economic empowerment, to gender equality, climate change, and political participation.

The briefs and associated infographics were developed by Women Deliver and partners for the new Deliver for Good advocacy campaign, which was launched at the recent Women Deliver 2016 Conference. We are welcome feedback and your input to make the policy briefs even stronger (deadline 30 June). And we invite you to sign the Commitment to Girls and Women on the Deliver for Good website. The briefs are open for consultation until June 30th, and we Invite you to share your feedback and add case studies. In addition to providing input, we hope you will sign the commitment to Deliver for Good website.

The Deliver for Good campaign is built around the premise that girls and women are the drivers of sustainable development and powerful agents of change. Evidence from around the world confirms that investing in girls and women creates a ripple effect that yields multiple benefits – not only for individual women, but for families, communities, and countries. Yet, despite all we know, decision makers have failed to consistently make girls and women a priority. Now, at the dawn of the sustainable development agenda, we have an opportunity to correct this wrong. It is time to prioritize the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women. It is time to deliver, and deliver for good!
