Accelerate Access to Resources

When girls and women lack access to resources such as land, clean energy, water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) there are far-reaching implications across many dimensions including health, education, housing, and livelihoods.

This month, the Deliver for Good campaign shines a spotlight on the challenges to accessing resources for girls and women and the key approaches for overcoming them.

From providing WASH for improved sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) to realizing indigenous and community land rights for women, Deliver for Good partners are showcasing the solutions that will deliver for girls and women and power progress for all.
