The Report provides a comprehensive analysis of the gender dimensions of climate change in three key climate-affected sectors of agriculture, water, and energy in ten countries – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka – in South Asia and the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH).
“Progress on the Sustainable Development Goals: The gender snapshot 2022” presents the latest evidence on gender equality across all 17 Goals, calling out the long road ahead to achieve gender equality. It emphasizes the interlinkages among the goals, the pivotal force gender equality plays in driving progress across the SDGs, and women and girls’ central role in leading the way forward.
Despite the high degree of feminization, the health
and care sector faces gender inequalities, including
with respect to pay. This report is the first of its kind:
a global and sector-wide gender pay gap analysis
using data from 54 countries, which together
represent about 40% of the sector’s wage employees
across the world.
