  • SDG 5 - Gender Equality

More than two years into the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, gender equality is fundamental to delivering on the promises of sustainability, peace and human progress. How far have we come in turning the 2030 Agenda into results for women and girls on the ground, and what is needed to bridge the remaining gaps between rhetoric and reality?

UN Women looks at what it will really take to achieve the 2030 Agenda in its new flagship report “Turning promises into action: Gender equality in the 2030 Agenda”. The report takes a look at all 17 SDGs, showing their impact on the lives of women and girls and highlighting how the different dimensions of well-being and deprivation are deeply intertwined.
