Almost two years since the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, women are still bearing the heaviest brunt of its effects. Achieving full gender equality in the face of this and other global challenges will require comprehensive analysis and policies across all Sustainable Development Goals, not just SDG 5.
As such, the priority theme for this year’s Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) is: “Achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls in the context of climate change, environmental and disaster risk reduction policies and programmes”. In line with this, UNEP-DHI was invited to join the panel of speakers for a side event discussing the progress and challenges in monitoring SDGs from a gender perspective.
Sandra Bruehlmann, Programme Associate for the SDG 6 IWRM Support Programme at Global Water Partnership, will be presenting during the webinar. She will elaborate on the findings of the recent report “Advancing towards gender mainstreaming in water resources management” (available here for download), of which UNEP-DHI was a co-creator.
Join us for an engaging discussion with key stakeholders to understand the progress in SDGs from a gender perspective, and how improved gender data is crucial to building back smarter after the pandemic.
