Each of these Goals
has a number of targets and indicators some of which could easily be a point of
focus for Soroptimist Clubs can look at what they currently have planned and
see if it fits one of the goals or they may choose to tackle the goals in terms
of their local area first before considering the wider context. For example
with Goal 15 which looks large it may be a matter of identifying if a local
ecosystem could do with support and see how that might take place within the
context of the SDGs and our Programme objectives.
