Gender equality plans in Latin America and the Caribbean: route maps for development

Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC)

ECLAC has published its study "Gender equality plans in Latin America and the Caribbean: route maps for development”*, analyzing the processes of drawing up gender equality plans that are currently in place in countries in the region, presenting them as roadmaps towards gender equality and the guarantor of women's rights in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), as well as a sign of the public determination to make progress on this question.

The document, the first in a new series called "Gender Equality Observatory in Latin America and the Caribbean" also contains explanatory illustrations on specific situations and policies adopted in LAC and highlights the importance of assigning responsibilities correctly across the different sectors involved in order to achieve a successful roll-out.

Although there is still much to do to reach equality between men and women, the mere existence of these plans is itself a sign of the state's commitment to equality.
