Geographic Area: Regional


Gender equality is central to achieving the 2030 Agenda. Gender is reflected in numerous SDGs, and their targets and indicators. However, SDGs on climate change, land, and sea and others that relate to environmental management lack gender-specific indicators. This has led to widespread gender data gaps when it comes to measuring progress on envi-ronment-related goals. The indicators presented in this report can be used to identify how gender, age and disability should be considered in strategies and policies. After testing them for local relevance, countries in Asia and the Pacific could use these indicators as part of efforts to monitor and report on gender, climate change and disasters in a coordinat-ed and cohesive way.
