The Shared United Nations System Framework for Action on Equality and Non-discrimination aims to establish a common understanding of the challenge of rising inequalities and pervasive discrimination and to put forward a common programme for action. The Framework specifies elements of a comprehensive and coherent package of policy and programme support at the national, regional and global levels; promotes a common, system-wide approach to the analysis and monitoring of inequalities and discrimination, and their root causes; and identifies ways to strengthen accountability measures.

With the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in 2015, world leaders agreed on a vision and an ambitious plan of action for change: freeing the world of poverty and hunger, protecting the planet from degradation; ensuring that that all people can live prosperous and fulfilling live in dignity and equality, and fostering peaceful, just and inclusive societies free of fear and violence. Universal in scope and application and integrated and indivisible in nature, the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has the potential to be truly transformative. Its implementation calls for coordinated actions across the peace and security, human rights, humanitarian affairs and sustainable development spectrum and requires a deeper collective engagement by all stakeholders – governments, parliaments, the scientific and academic community, civil society, the private sector, the international community and the United Nations system.
