Delivering transformative change: The role of gender-responsive policies

As elaborated on in the previous chapters, robust indicators and statistics are indispensable tools for monitoring progress towards the achievement of gender equality across the 2030 Agenda. The next two chapters, focused on policy action, begin from the premise that the 2030 Agenda is not only about enhancing data collection for monitoring purposes but also about putting effective policies in place that will foster palpable change in women’s enjoyment of their rights. In fact, the two aims—monitoring and policy—are closely interlinked: The main purpose of data is not just to monitor progress but also to galvanize action and suggest effective policy pathways that will achieve the agreed upon goals and targets.
