The EU Resource Package: Tools to advance the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and Gender Equality

In September 2015, world leaders have committed to work together to make our world a more equitable and sustainable place for all, including for women and girls. Gender equality and women’s empowerment are universally recognized objectives, expressed in Sustainable Development Goal no.5. In spite of the global efforts made over the last 30 years, gender gaps are still too deep to be ignored. This on-line Resource Package (RP) intends to offer practical guidance on how to promote gender equality and achieve more equitable and sustainable development results.
