This High-Level Political Forum, Affirm Your Commitment to Girls and Women

In the lead up to the High-Level Political Forum, as world leaders gather to talk about progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, we—the thirteen founding partners of Deliver for Good—encourage you to join more than 200 organizations from over 50 countries and 5 high-level influencers in affirming your commitment to girls and women.

We call on world leaders to take the following action:

  • Ensure girls and women are prioritized in global development:
    Develop and implement, with adequate financing, evidence-based national policies and strategies that advance gender equality and the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women at the global, regional, and country levels.
  • Ensure funding matches the scope of needs:
    Mobilize additional resources at the country level to fill gaps in domestic investments for girls and women, and ensure corresponding budgets are based on costed implementation plans.
  • Ensure strategies are driven by participatory processes:
    Include girls, young people, and women in the design and implementation of strategies, policies and programs, and involve men and boys in all efforts to improve gender equality.
  • Ensure national policies and strategies are implemented as promised:
    Gather gender-disaggregated data to track the implementation of policies and strategies affecting girls and women, and ensure corresponding budgets are transparent.


Our Commitment to Girls and Women:

Wherever inequality lives, there stands a girl or woman able to turn the tide of adversity into a tidal wave of progress. We simply have to commit to her.

Girls and women carry more than babies. Or water. They carry families. They carry businesses. They carry potential. And when we invest in their health, rights, and wellbeing, it creates a positive ripple effect that lifts up entire countries.

Give girls and women access to healthcare, they will deliver more resilient families. Give girls and women the potential to learn, they will deliver stronger economies. Give girls and women opportunities, they will deliver solutions.
