Sport for Development and Peace (SDP) recognises the potential contribution of sport to achieving important development objectives, including the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Enhancing the Contribution of Sport to the Sustainable Development Goals builds on the work of previous Commonwealth publications analysing sport’s role in progressing sustainable development. Aimed at governmental policy-makers and other stakeholders, it provides evidenced and balanced policy options to support the effective and cost-efficient contribution of sport towards six prioritised SDGs.

The guide is underpinned by an emphasis towards strengthening the means of implementation and measuring and evaluating progress, which are emphasised by the SDGs and existing Commonwealth principles. Developed through extensive Commonwealth Secretariat-led consultation with relevant experts and organisations, it represents an important addition to the growing body of SDP publications, guides and research.

Achieve Gender Equality and Empower All Women and Girls (SDG 5)

Gender equality is central to the core values and principles of the Commonwealth and to the achievement of sustainable development. In its own right, SDG 5 specifically recognises the importance of gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. Gender issues are also more broadly acknowledged throughout the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with particular targets related to women and girls included across a number of goals, including those for SDGs 4, 8, 11 and 16 that are considered in this guide.
