THE FIVE PILLARS OF THE SDGs
*PEOPLE *PLANET *PEACE *PROSPERITY *PARTNERSHIP
THE THREE DIMENSION OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
The sustainable Development Goals is an integrated , an inclusive and balance agenda. The dimension of sustainable Development Goals :the economic, social and environmental are represented.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a share agenda for all of us .Women and Girl as Critical drivers of SDGs act as a catalyts , an initioators, movers and shakers , advocates, supporter for chsnge at any level ,spheres of inﬂuence and position which bring about collective impact in attaining of the Agenda in 2030.
THE DRIVERS OF DEVELOPMENT : WOMEN AND GIRLS
The Sustainable Development Goals seek to build on the millennium Development Goals and complete what was not achive during the timeframe .(Finishing the unfinished Business).
It is worthy of note that among the seventeen (17) Sustainable Development Goals are goals seeking to educate , empower , promote , prevent and prosecute violation of the women right. The drivers aimed to fill in the gaps and further remove barrier to inclusiveness , access , participation and active representation in all spheres of Women and Girls life in the local Government ,State, Society, and Nation at large.
GENDER EQUALITY AND EMPOWER ALL WOMEN AND GIRLS
The Sustainable Development Goals addresses important structure drivers of gender base inequality. They include target on eliminating gender base violence ,child marriage ,female genital mutilation and calls for equal right to economic resources , including access to land and property ; equal leadership opportunity ;and engage more women in playing prominent role in the society .
The Former United Nation Secretary Genetral, BAN Ki-moon state that Gender Equality has three key factors to gender equality:
Economic resources ; economic participation ;political participation and access to health Service. PROGRESS OF SDGs 5
While some indicators of gender equality are progressing, such as a siginificant decline in the prevalence of female genital mutilation and early marriage , the overall number continue to be high. Moreover , insufficient progress on structural issue at the root of gender inequality , such as legal discrimination, unfaire social norms and attitudes,decision-making on sexual and reproductive issue and low level of political perticipation, are undermining the ability to achive sustainable Development Goals 5.
Recent data from 106 countries show that 18 per cent of ever – partnered women and girls age 15 to 49 have experienced physical and /or sexual patner violence in the previous 12 months. The practice of child marriage has contributed to decline around the world ,largely driven by the prodgress in South Asia, where a girl's risk of marrying in childhood decreased by about one quarter between 2013 and 2018 . In sub – saharan Africa, level of child marriage have decline at a more modest rate.
At least 200 million girls and women have been subjected to female genital mutilation, base on data from 30 countries where the practice is concentrated and where nationally representative prevalence data is available.In these countries ,the prevalence of this harmful practice declined by one quarter between 2000 and 2018.
Women continue to be underrepresentated at all level of political leadership.As at 1 January 2019, women's representation in national parliaments ranged from 0 to 61.3 per cent , with the average standing at 24.2 per cent , an increase from 19 per cent in 2010. At the local level, data from 99 countries and area show that women 's representaion in elected deliberative bodies varies from less than 1 per cent of world employment , only 27 per cent of managerial position in the world were occupied by women in 2018, up only marginally from 26 per cent.When legislated gender quotas are
adopted, siginificantly higher proportion of women are elected at both national and local levels. While women represented 39 per cent of world employment , only 27 per cent of managerial position in the world were occupied by women in 2018 , up only marginally from 26 per cent in 2015. The proportionof women in the management has increase since 2000 in all regions except in least developed countries. Over the past 25 years, there has been progress in reforming law towards improving gender equality , yet disciminatory laws and gaps in legal protection tremaine in many countries. On the basis of data collected across four area of law in 2018 from 53 countries, almost a third have legal gaps in the employment and economic benefits area and in the marriage and family area, respectively .
Despite progress in implementing gender–responsive budgeting globally, gaps remain in country eﬀort to establish comprehensive and transparent tracking systems. Base on the 2018 data from 69 countries, 13 countries fully met the criteria of having in place a tracking system that measures and make publicly available gender budget data, and 41 countries approached the requirements.
GENDER EQUALITY : KEY FACTORS:
a. Economic Resouce b. Economic Participation
c. Political participation d. Access to Health Service
Gender Goals is central to achieving the other 16 Sustainable Development Goals.Eliminating gender disparity in the region would increase per capital income by 70% in roughly 60 years
