The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day, “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step it up for Gender Equality”, is well-aligned with the ambitious Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, which integrates gender equality and women’s empowerment as a cross-cutting theme across the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and 169 targets, making it clear that equality and empowerment are a necessary part of a sustainable future.
