Gender equality is both a global goal in its own right and a required input to remedy the current “pluri-crises” and accelerate progress towards the 2030 Agenda. Advancing gender equality, however, necessitates not only addressing gender gaps but also underlying systemic and deeply embedded drivers.
The authors propose five pathways of action for the G20 that do so: 1) equitable livelihoods and economic empowerment; 2) equitable decision-making; 3) integrated data systems and informed policy; 4) rights; and 5) gender transformative programming.
More broadly, to “Leave no one behind” and be effective in building on the G20’s important commitments to date, policy and investments should include targeted consideration of how gender and social inequities interact and must keep current with how the concept of gender is evolving in societies.
