Creating opportunities in education and health, especially for women and girls, as critical bridges to sustainable development, giving individuals and communities the options they need to advance their welfare.
We are encouraged by the enormous progress in the world. Virtually every country has improved its education, health, and economic situation over the past 20 years; however this opportunity has not necessarily been equitable and there is work to bridge the gap and build on the progress made.
Development requires progressively and continually improving the ways we work, with ever more creative and ambitious approaches locally and globally.
Sustainable development engages communities and stakeholders to identify solutions that are both creative and effective.
