WORLD SURVEY ON THE ROLE OF WOMEN IN DEVELOPMENT 2014 GENDER EQUALITY AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
PDF File Size: 2.83 MB | Download   
The immense social, economic and environmental consequences of climate change and loss of essential ecosystems are becoming clear. Their effects are already being felt in
floods, droughts, and devastated landscapes and livelihoods. Among those most affected are women and girls, given the precariousness of their livelihoods, the burden of securing shelter, food, water and fuel that largely falls on them, and the constraints on their access to land and natural resources. As the global community grapples with the challenges of sustainable development and the definition of the Sustainable
Development Goals, the World Survey on the Role of Women in Development 2014 asserts
the central role of gender equality. It charts the rationale and actions necessary to achieve sustainable development.

Linking gender equality with sustainable development is important for several reasons.
It is a moral and ethical imperative. Efforts to achieve a just and sustainable future cannot ignore the rights, dignity and capabilities of half the world’s population. To be effective, policy actions for sustainability must redress the disproportionate impact on women and girls of economic, social and environmental shocks and stresses. Finally, women’s knowledge, agency and collective action has huge potential to improve resource productivity, enhance ecosystem conservation and sustainable use of natural resources, and to create more sustainable, low-carbon food, energy, water and health systems. Failure to capitalize on this would be a missed opportunity. Women should
not be viewed as victims, but as central actors in moving towards sustainability.
