The event is an opportunity to highlight the successes of the Spotlight Initiative's first phase, demonstrating 'proof of concept' not just on ending violence but as an accelerator across the SDGs. The moment aims to increase visibility, lay the foundations for the scale up of the Initiative, and secure commitments from Member States so that every country has a national plan to end violence against women and girls, based on the Spotlight Initiative's comprehensive model.
