It is our pleasure to invite you to contribute to our e-discussion, titled Leaving No One Behind: The SDGs and LGBTI+ Inclusion in Africa.
This public consultation is being organized on the new #WeBelongAfrica Online Community Hub on UNDP’s SparkBlue from 20 June to 19 July.
Mandated by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of goals and targets to advance sustainable development by 2030. A global framework for accountability, the SDGs have a guiding principle that “no one will be left behind” and a commitment to prioritizing the poorest and most marginalized.
The SDGs present an opportunity for LGBTI+ issues and participation to be amplified and advanced, and for those to be further connected to broader rights and development issues.
Building upon conversations held in a 2020/21 webinar series with a similar theme organized by the #WeBelongAfrica programme in partnership with CIVICUS, Pan Africa ILGA, and Positive Vibes, this e-discussion aims to increase understandings of the SDG goals, targets, processes and actors to promote LGBTI+ inclusion in Africa. It also seeks to grow cross-sectoral engagement, collaboration and strategizing around inclusive SDG-actions.  
We encourage participants – including LGBTI+ activists and allies in Africa, people working on SDG-related issues, and development partners – to share their perspectives and experiences.
You can access the e-discussion here: https://www.sparkblue.org/group/cso-network. In order to comment you will need to Sign Up.

We look forward to your active participation.
