Promote people’s well-being and support equitable representation of countries in global decision-making fora

Far too many people in our world are excluded from meaningful engagement and participation in economic, social and political life. The vulnerable are marginalized and exposed to significant inequalities affecting their wellbeing and livelihoods. Barriers to accessing adequate structures and services for health and sanitation and to quality education, training and lifelong learning opportunities compromise people’s productive capacity and, consequently, their ability to contribute to social and economic development. At a macro level, some groups of countries are also exposed to significant inequalities, including barriers to participation and representation in global institutions and decision-making processes.
