Mutually Supporting Priorities: The CARICOM GEI and the SDGS
Agenda 2030’s commitment to “leave no one behind” requires an ambitious and highly disaggregated data collection effort by every government and multilateral entity. The CARICOM Gender Equality Indicators (GEI) framework will enhance governments’ capacity to monitor and assess their progress in meeting gender equality commitments specified in the Beijing Platform for Action, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and the SDGs. Commitments to collecting data to monitor SDG progress will be specifically facilitated by GEI data collection, and vice versa. This document sets out the mutually supporting priorities of the CARICOM GEI and the SDGS.
