Gender equality and social equity are central to ensure the realization of sustainable and equitable development, including in emergency and humanitarian contexts. The persistence of social inequity and significant gender inequalities in the world, including in low, middle and high income countries, presents a major barrier to development, negating fundamental human rights and the expansion of human freedoms. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) include gender-equality and reducing inequalities as two stand-alone goals (SDG 5 and SDG 10). These are also mainstreamed within all goals. Given that the SDGs will be “localized” in national development goals and strategies, gender equality and social equity are expected to be among the key strategies and outcomes mainstreamed in global and national development strategies.
