How LGBTQI people can be included in the Sustainable Development Goals


Visste du att hbtqi-elever står för en högre andel avhopp än andra elever? Eller att hbtqi-kvinnor och personer exkluderas från utvecklingsinsatser på grund av könsroller, normer och stereotyper? Dessa är två exempel på problem som hindrar uppfyllandet av de globala målen.

An important principle of Agenda 2030 is to leave no one behind. Despite this, LGBTQI people are still excluded from sutainable development initatives and the SDGs. Because of discrimination and structrual oppression LGBTQI people have worse health, less access to education and experience poverty at higher rates. As long as LGBTQI people continue to be excluded from sustainable development, none of the global goals will be achieved.

RFSL has created three new policy briefs about the barriers which prevent LGBTQI people from having their human rights fulfilled, based on the SDGs. In our briefs you can find information on how LGBTQI people are excluded from three different goals: education, gender equality and finally preace, justice and strong institutions. In the poicy briefs you can also find RFSL’s recommendations for LGBTQI-inclusion and how we can ensure that their human rights are fulfilled. If you are an activist or working in civil society, you will also be able to read our tips for using Agenda 2030 as a tool for including LGBTQI people in sustainable development.
