Gender equality and development

The MDGs and post-2015 framework

 

The DAC Network on gender equality has a successful track record of influencing global processes. Our focus now is on addressing the unfinished business of the MDGs for women and girls and building consensus around a strong post-2015 framework that places a high priority on achieving gender equality and women’s rights.

 

To address the unfinished business of the MDGs, women and girls should be front and centre of the post-2015 development agenda through a strong standalone goal on gender equality and women’s rights; and gender-specific targets and indicators in all other goals. To support members’ efforts to achieve this the GENDERNET:

 

  • Held a Joint Biennial Workshop with the UN’s Inter-Agency Network on Women and Gender Equality (IANWGE) on the MDGs and post-2015 framework on 6-7 November 2013. The workshop was an opportunity to strategise on entry-points and tactics to build consensus around a post-2015 agenda that has gender equality and women’s rights at its heart.

 

  • Supported members’ efforts to prepare for the CSW58 on challenges and achievements in the implementation of the MDGs for women and girls (2014).

 

  • Published briefings on gender equality and the post-2015 framework. Key publications include:

 

Financing the Unfinished Business of Gender Equality and Women’s Rights: Priorities for the Post-2015 Framework  (2014)

 

This paper analyses investments by OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) donors in six policy areas that are priorities for the post-2015 development agenda because of their catalytic impact on achieving gender equality and women’s rights. It is available here as a technical paper and shorter policy brief.

Unfinished Business – Women and Girls Front and Centre Beyond 2015 (2013)

This argues for a strong, standalone goal on gender equality and women’s rights and identifies priority areas for action. It is available here in English, French and Spanish.

 

Gender Equality and Women’s Rights in the Post-2015 Agenda – A Foundation for Sustainable Development (2013)

 

This OECD-wide paper reiterates the call for a post-2015 framework that retains a standalone goal on gender equality and integrates gender-specific targets and indicators in the other goals. It is available here in English, French and Spanish.
