UN Global Compact – An Ocean of Equal Opportunity
Gender equality matters. For women and men, in and out of the workforce. For girls and boys, about to explore their potential. For governments and the private sector, hoping for economic recovery.
So, how can the blue economy help advance Gender Equality?
I was honoured to make the opening remarks for the panel convened by UN Global Compact as part of the Target Gender Equality.
SDG 14, Life Below Water, is essential for a blue economy, but also directly impacts the status of women by advancing SDG 5, and, in fact, many other SDGs – poverty, hunger, education, health and climate change.
