From November 2016 to March 2017, Women Deliver and its Alliance Members disseminated our National SDG Advocacy Scorecard to gauge the extent to which grassroots women’s rights and gender equality organizations (typically excluded from national data collection activities and decision-making) have been involved in national-level Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) implementation discussions and processes. This scorecard specifically collects data on three dimensions of civil society engagement: 

  • Knowledge and access to resources; 
  • Participation and partnerships; and 
  • Safety.

Our results (from more than 100 organizations across the Global South) show that while grassroots women’s rights organizations are ready and eager to lend their unique experience and expertise to make the SDG implementation process successful and sustainable (especially for SDG5), they are not being included in decision making. Our recommendations based on this data are that more funding is needed for grassroots advocacy around SDG5 implementation and that civil society participation in national-level SDG implementation processes must be better supported.
