Changing the rules that put people in poverty, creating new opportunities for all and reducing the impact of climate change on the most vulnerable.
Ensuring everyone has access to vital services like healthcare and education, and making governments fulfill promises on aid and reducing debt.
Providing better protection and greater help to people in crisis situations and strengthening their ability to withstand future emergencies.
When women and men are treated as equals everyone benefits. Womenhave the right to make decisions for themselves and to be treated with respect.
