He, therefore, stressed the need for joint efforts toward abating gender inequality and inclusion -related losses in order to achieve the SDGs by 2030.
He explained that the group was organising a summit to explore transformative ways to achieve gender inclusion and accelerate the actualisation of the SDGs.

Sustainable Development Goal

” This seminar seeks to look at it from the multi sectoral approaches, in the light of the fact that we need to work together with the high level forum on the Sustainable Development Goal.
” It has partnered with a policy innovation center to ensure a seamless delivery of the first national level gender and Inclusion summit.

” The high level forum on the SDGs is a program currently being run by the NESG with the support of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, towards the actualisation of the SDGs by the year 2030.
” Including the attainment of gender equality, which is part of the SDG goals, the gender and inclusion summit will hold on November 16 in Abuja.

” This is to explore transformative ways to achieve greater gender inclusion and of course to accelerate the development of the SDGs,” he said.

Osasiyi Dirisu

Also, Dr Osasiyi Dirisu, Deputy Director of Policy Innovation Centre, NESG, said the summit would enable them to explore transformative ways to achieve gender equality, inclusion and gender responsive governance in Nigeria.

She revealed that the summit’s theme, ” Connecting the dots for a gender inclusive society,” aimed at breaking down the “siloed” approach to viewing gender and help stakeholders understand that everyone could contribute to fostering a gender inclusive society.

Dirisu said that a purple book containing gender transformative policies and programs strategies for advancing gender equality across sectors would be produced and disseminated.
