Opinion: Why the SDGs’ defining decade must focus on accountability for those left behind
The year 2020 marks ten years of the Every Woman Every Child (EWEC) movement as well as the halfway point to the 2030 Sustainable Development targets, urging us to take stock of progress made in improving the health of women, children and adolescents around the world. COVID-19 has undoubtedly slowed progress that was already lagging by 20% prior to the pandemic.
Strategies, action plans, and goals are important, but without accountability at the core, real change cannot occur.Joy Phumaphi, Elizabeth Mason and Alicia Ely Yamin, Independent Accountability Panel
