  • Millennium Development Goals, National Reports: A Look Through a Gender Lens

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday 1 May 2003
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 
    Approach: 

    A scan of 13 Millennium Development Goal (MDG) country reports shows that gender equality concerns are inadequately mainstreamed. They are confined to Goal 3 (gender equality), Goal 5 (maternal mortality) and Goal 6 (HIV/AIDS). In turn, the rights-based language often used under Goal 3 is lost under other goals where women feature in their traditional roles as mothers and as victims. This is further confirmed by their absence under Goal 7 (environment) and Goal 8 (development cooperation).
