“Equality needs to underpin every aspect of sustainability if the objectives of the SDGs are to be met. Although SDG 5 Explores this through the prism of gender, SDG 10 takes a broader look at intersectionality of disadvantages. This disadvantages can be felt through all of the other key issues raised by the SDGs – disadvantaged groups are both more likely to be unable to take advantage of progress and to suffer from the effects of climate change.”
