WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: A INTEGRATED APPROACH

Dr. Deepak Jahagirdar Ms. Kiran Pawar

Abstract


Abstract:- This article is emphasized for the empowerment of women and girls to be realised through sustainable development, there needs to be more than a commitment to these goals. There must be concerted action across all countries and communities - dedicated resources should be provisioned to empower women of all ages and girls as part of the SDGs.[1] Approaching gender equality as a crosscutting issue in the SDGs requires that gender is included at all stages of policy development, means of implementation, monitoring and accountability. The need for a cross-cutting, inclusive and gender-sensitive approach is clear: without this approach the global transformation envisaged by the SDGs will not be achieved. Women and girls are crucial contributors, implementers and beneficiaries of sustainable development. Their empowerment is fundamental to the achievement of the 2030 Development Agenda.[2] The stand-alone SDG on gender equality (Goal 5) should be celebrated, as it outlines targets for every country to make gender equality a reality. However, Goal 5 does not stand in isolation and will not achieve gender equality alone. A gender-sensitive approach must be implemented across the entire agenda for the 2030 development agenda to be successful.[3]

Keywords:- Empowerment of women, Sustainable development.
