This report provides a comprehensive and authoritative assessment of progress, gaps and challenges in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals from a gender perspective. It monitors global and regional trends in achieving the SDGs for women and girls based on available data, and provides practical guidance for the implementation of gender-responsive policies and accountability processes. As a source of high-quality data and policy analysis, the report is a key reference and accountability tool for policymakers, women’s organizations, the UN system, and other stakeholders.

This report lays the basis for robust, gender-responsive monitoring of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by:

  • showing how gender equality is central to the achievement of all 17 SDGs and arguing for an integrated and rights-based approach to implementation;
  • explaining gender data gaps and challenges for robust monitoring and establishing starting points and trends across a range of gender-related indicators based on available data;
  • providing concrete guidance on policies to achieve two strategic targets under SDG 5 (violence and unpaid care) and outlining how these policies are synergistic with other goals and targets; and
  • setting an agenda for strengthening accountability for gender equality commitments at global, regional, and national levels.
