Gender Equality and the SDGs in Asia and the Pacific
Who’s behind it? – Asian Development Bank
How can it help? – This publication provides the first Sustainable Development Goal assessment of the situation of women and girls in Asia and the Pacific based on data from official sources.
The report establishes a baseline for governments and policy makers to monitor and accelerate progress towards gender equality commitments in the Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs). It identifies data gaps and underscores the necessity of heightened urgency to improve production and use of gender statistics for evidence-based SDG localization. It also provides valuable insight into key catalysts and policy recommendations to assist countries to achieve gender equality by 2030.
