The mandate of equality bodies places them in a key position to contribute to the successful implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. The ambition and nature of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the policy framework it establishes for all countries makes the Sustainable Development Goals central to the ability of equality bodies to achieve their goals and realise their potential for equality and diversity in society.
