“We need to improve opportunities for girls around the world, address the systemic barriers that keep people in poverty, and halt the climate crisis. 

"But we can only succeed at addressing these issues by eliminating the barriers that have prevented us to end extreme poverty and committing to financing levels that will allow for real sustainable progress and not just a temporary fix," reads the letter.
