UN Meeting: Tackling Global Challenges to Equality and Inclusion


The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development carries huge transformative potential. Its vision of putting people and the planet first, focusing on sustaining peace, putting gender equality at its center, and rallying to leave no one behind, holds great promise for the realization of the human rights norms and global policy frameworks forming its backbone.
In February 2019, the UN organized an Expert Group Meeting in Vienna on the gender-responsive implementation of the 2030 Agenda with a specific focus on three of the Sustainable Development Goals: Goal 10, reduce inequality within and among countries; Goal 13, take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts; and Goal 16, promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all, and build effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions at all levels.
