Gender equality and the advancement of women
Regional mechanisms such as the "Regional ministerial fora on environment" influence global as well as national priorities related to the environment and the SDGs. During the XXI Forum of Ministers of Environment (October 2018), it was agreed to launch an initiative to consider the gender perspective as a significant variable for the regional implementation of SDGs. More information available at:https://www.unenvironment.org/es/events/evento-de-onu-medio-ambiente/xxi... .
