Compacts for Equality: Towards a Sustainable Future is presented by ECLAC to the States members at the thirty-fifth session of the Commission (Lima, 5 - 9 May 2014). In this third volume, the aim of equality dovetails with development that is more economically, socially and environmentally sustainable in the medium and long terms in Latin America and the Caribbean. This new proposal firmly embraces the gender perspective, natural resource governance and the dynamics of labour and consumption, and advocates medium- and long-term social covenants, engaging a broad range of actors in the exercise of citizenship, as a condition for successful development.

Equality and inequality in Latin America and the Caribbean

The conception of equality presented earlier in this document encompasses much more than equality of resources. Not that resource inequality is considered unimportant; indeed, ECLAC has contributed substantially to its analysis by quantifying income inequality in recent decades and by analysing its determinants both in terms of structuralist theory and from the various perspectives developed within the institution itself.
