Caribbean Joint Statement on Gender Equality and the Post 2015 and SIDS Agenda

Posted in: Documents | 02 September 2015

As the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) framework comes to a close in 2015, the Caribbean Region is advocating for a comprehensive and transformative Post 2015 and Small Island Developing States (SIDS) development agenda. The goal of advocacy efforts will be to ensure that Caribbean specific priorities for the achievement of gender equality and women’s empowerment are advanced. The emerging global development frameworks must address the structural foundations of gender-based inequality, including the recognition that inequalities are a consequence of the unequal relations of power. We are therefore asking that the global Post 2015 and SIDS frameworks take into consideration the social, economic and environmental vulnerabilities of SIDS, and the resulting challenges for sustainable, human rights-based and gender responsive development.
