In preparation for the 2019 High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), UN Women, UNODC, and the UNFCCC Secretariat brought together experts from governments, academia, and civil society for a meeting in Vienna from 27 to 28 February 2019 on the gender-responsive implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with a specific focus on three of the Sustainable Development Goals: Goal 10, Goal 13, and Goal 16.
Recommendations from the report of the meeting focus on:
- strengthening good governance, inclusive rule of law, and access to justice;
- removing structural barriers to women’s participation in decision-making and promoting inclusive and sustainable economic growth and social development that achieves gender equality and empowers all women and girls;
- investing in national statistical capacities to promote evidence-based policy-making, planning, and budgeting, and ensure better monitoring of progress and accountability for results; and
- increasing financing for the gender-responsive implementation of the 2030 Agenda through domestic resource mobilization policies and global action to address the systemic imbalances in domestic and international tax, trade, and investment arrangements.
