Gender and SDGs

The SPECA Working Group on Gender and Sustainable Development Goals (WG on Gender and SDGs) is a subsidiary body within the governing structure of the UN Special Programme for the Economies of Central Asia (SPECA). The member countries of the Programme are Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) provide overall support to the Programme.

The SPECA Working Group on Gender and Economy was established following the decision of the SPECA Governing Council taken at its first session (Baku, Azerbaijan, 27 June 2006). In line with the Agenda 2030 the 14th session of the SPECA Governing Council approved the new Terms of Reference of the Working Group and change of its name to the SPECA Working Group on Gender and Sustainable Development Goals. It works to raise awareness on the interdependency between gender and economy through sharing good practices in mainstreaming gender in economic policies, policy-oriented research and projects as well as developing cross-sectoral linkages and synergies with other relevant areas of the SPECA activities
