On 23 November 2021, AGIP hosted the webinar ‘Where are we on the adolescent agenda? Taking a deep dive into Covid-19 evidence and SDG data gaps’ to launch two recent AGIP and partner published reports:
AGIP is proud to work in partnership to achieve our commitment to amplify and support adolescent girls’ leadership in the ongoing Generation Equality process.
The Adolescent Girls Investment Plan (AGIP) is a global, intergenerational coalition working to affect change for adolescent girls by closing the persistent gap between resources, evidence, and commitments for adolescent girls.
Building on the recommendations in the Young Feminist Manifesto, AGIP will amplify and support adolescent girls’ leadership and the community-driven organizations central to their participation in the GEF process and ACs, support the Adolescent Girls Advisory Body and Youth Task Force to ensure that these spaces are girl and adolescent friendly and gender-inclusive, build the capacity of adolescent girls to develop and use evidence and best practice to inform their advocacy and support adolescent girls so they are centered in GEF accountability mechanisms and have meaningful engagement and co-leadership. Where gaps exist in processes, AGIP will create, resource, and advocate for meaningful participation, leadership, and decision making.
On 1st July 2021, adolescent girl leaders utilized this event to raise their concerns and share their aspirations about the inclusion of girl leaders beyond the Paris Forum, especially when it comes to their inclusion in the implementation and accountability of girl-centric commitments over the next five years. This event was entirely designed by a group of adolescent girl leaders with support from AGIP.
