A Guide To Global Gender Targets
The present guide proposes to reconcile the gender-related targets in the Sustainable Development Goals with the objectives of the Beijing Platform according to various sub-topics. It is organized in two sections. Part I reviews all targets of SDG 5 (Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls) in correspondence with relevant critical areas and strategic objectives in the Beijing Platform. Part II brings together targets under all other Sustainable Development Goals which make explicit reference to women and girls, though they do not have gender equality as their main area of focus (poverty eradication, health, education, employment, etc.). Finally, certain policy aspects may fall out of the scope of this guide, but can nonetheless be essential for achieving gender equality. Policy-makers and researchers are thus encouraged to look beyond this list of selected targets, and seek to mainstream gender considerations across all issues covered in the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs.
