What The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development recognises gender equality and women’s empowerment to be paramount for development, as reflected in Sustainable Development Goal 5 (SDG5), the standalone goal on gender equality, and the gender-specific targets included across other SDGs. Providing robust data for these gender targets is critical for their achievement.
As co-custodian agencies, UN Women, the OECD Development Centre and the World Bank Group have partnered to develop SDG indicator 5.1.1: ‘Whether or not legal frameworks are in place to promote, enforce and monitor equality and non-discrimination on the basis of sex’. Drawing from the experience of the Social Institutions and Gender Index of the OECD Development Centre and the Women, Business and the Law project of the World Bank Group, this indicator aims to monitor progress toward Target 5.1 which calls on Member States1 to ‘End all forms of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere.’
Why During this webinar, experts from the three organisations will present SDG indicator 5.1.1 and preliminary results. The discussion will also focus on how this work supports countries to achieve SDG 5 by 2030.
When The webinar will take place on Tuesday 19 June at 4pm (Paris time). It will run for one hour. Presentations will be followed by a questions and answers session. Please do not hesitate to send your questions ahead of the webinar to Lea.Fuiret@oecd.org.
