image of Gender, The Environment and Sustainable Development in Asia and the Pacific

This publication is the first Asia-Pacific report that comprehensively maps out the intersections between gender and environment at the levels of household, work, community and policy. It examines gender concerns in the spheres of food security, agriculture, energy, water, fisheries and forestry, and identifies strategic entry points for policy interventions. Based on a grounded study of the reality in the Asia-Pacific region, this report puts together good practices and policy lessons that could be capitalized by policymakers to advance the agenda of sustainable development in Asia and the Pacific.

Foreword

The 2030 agenda for sustainable development is a visionary covenant for human progress. This aspirational agenda is built on the idea of “leaving no one behind” in the journey towards inclusive and sustainable development. Achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls are decisive factors in transforming this vision into a reality, particularly in Asia and the Pacific where only 5 of 53 ESCAP member States have achieved a low level of gender equality according to the Gender Inequality Index
