Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will not be possible without investing more in women.

That's the view of UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed, who led a high-level group of women leaders to two African countries this month.

Joining Ms Mohammed in Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) were the Executive Director of UN Women, the UN Special Representative on Sexual Violence in Conflict, and the African Union Special Envoy on Women, Peace and Security.
