Guidance Note Integrating a gender perspective into implementation of Agenda 2030

Guidance note cover page
Portia and UN Women

The aim of this Guidance Note is to help the UN Women country teams and others working in the field to promote gender responsive implementations of SDGs by showing the benefits of integrating a gender perspective into assessments of all the SDGs, and to show how to approach this task as a way to enhance gender mainstreaming across the 2030 Agenda in line with the recommendations in Mainstreaming a gender perspective into all policies and programmes in the United Nations system.The evidence and examples used in this Guidance Note are derived from two gender expert reports: Applying gender lenses to identify interlinkages and synergies between SDGs and Gender analysis toolkit for prioritising SDG goals and targets. 5 These reports show a direct connection between the observed lack of progress on gender equality in Agenda 2030 and the absence of available gender knowledge in the approaches used to analyse SDGs for implementation. The evidence gap on gender inequalities has encouraged biased perceptions of how SDG 5 influences other SDGs, and vice versa, and a failure to identify opportunities to advance gender equality in Agenda 2030 through the other goals
