Description

The Montevideo Strategy for Implementation of the Regional Gender Agenda within the Sustainable Development Framework by 2030 was adopted by the member States of ECLAC at the thirteenth session of the Regional Conference on Women in Latin America and the Caribbean. The aim of the Montevideo Strategy is to guide the implementation of the Regional Gender Agenda and ensure that it serves as a road map for achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at the regional level, from the perspective of gender equality and women’s autonomy and human rights.

Four structural challenges have been identified in the region: socioeconomic inequality and poverty; discriminatory, violent and patriarchal cultural patterns and the predominance of a culture of privilege; the sexual division of labour
and unfair social organization of care; and the concentration of power and hierarchical relations in the public sphere. With a view to overcoming these challenges, the Strategy sets forth 74 measures under 10 implementation pillars: 1. Normative framework; 2. Institutional architecture; 3. Participation; 4. Capacity-building and -strengthening; 5. Financing; 6. Communication; 7. Technology; 8. Cooperation; 9. Information systems; and 10. Monitoring, evaluation and accountability.
