Leveraging the Interlinkages: Gender Equality, Women’s Empowerment and the SDGs

IWRP is a member of the British Columbia Council for International Cooperation. This new report offers a selection of case studies that showcase the work that BCCIC members are doing in the field of gender equality and women’s empowerment. We have featured the work of our partners Climate Wise Women and the Osokuru Women’s Network in Uganda. The objective of the report is to promote accelerated progress towards women’s empowerment, gender equality, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by highlighting innovative tools and promising practice interventions designed and implemented by BCCIC members. These case studies capture diverse perspectives as well as practical examples in order to inspire action and catalyze new initiatives.  We were going to present it to the CSW meeting in 2020, but of course the meeting was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, this report highlights why innovative and transformational activism undertaken by women’s leadership is so critical, especially in times of crises now, and for the future ones.
