Leveraging the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for Conflict Prevention

Ensuring human security over militarized security is vital for the prevention of armed conflict as well as the protection of people and planet. As a Global Organizing Partner of the Women's Major Group (WMG), WILPF has been continuing its work in 2020 to leverage the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for women, peace and security. Many WILPF Sections work on the SDGs as part of their work for peace, gender justice, and a healthy environment. Our program is working with sections to map their existing work on the SDGs and support them in their work. 

This year, with a virtual High-Level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development, and as part of the WMG, we have continued in our feminist advocacy on the inextricable interlinkages between sustainable development and sustainable peace. Read our contributions to the WMG position paper and short advocacy briefs (briefs available in English, French, and Spanish) on each of the entry points identified in the first Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR).
