Gender Empowerment for Sustainable Development: Issues and Challenges

Pyare Lal [2] | Sohan Negi

Abstract: The accomplishment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of the United Nations encouraged the UN member countries to expand their target - specific strategies to include a more extensive and all - encompassing set of developmental goals in the form of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). A collection of 232 indicators, 169 targets, and 17 goals known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) must all be accomplished by the year 2030. These were put into effect on January 1st, 2016. The success of sustainable development depends on governments' capacity to empower women in accordance with the criteria and indicators listed in the SDGs. Among the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), "Achieve Gender Equality and Empower All Women and Girls, " is the only SDG that is exclusively focused on issues relating to gender equality and women's empowerment. In addition, each SDG incorporates standards and goals that are fundamentally aimed at gender equality. The current research makes an effort to examine the condition of women in light of several indicators for the sustainable development agenda. The performance of India in general and the state of Himachal Pradesh in particular with respect to several gender - related criteria and indicators stated under the list of sustainable development goals has been examined in order to do this.
