Inter-regional Expert Group Meeting "Placing equality at the centre of Agenda 2030"

Santiago, Chile - 27-28 Jun 2018


Understanding and addressing inequality in all its forms is necessary to promote the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and to ensure that “no one is left behind” in the development process. However, many challenges still exist to foster knowledge on the multiple dimensions of inequality, improve its measurement and strengthen the design of public policies for equality and that consider a rights-based approach.

This Inter-regional Expert Group Meeting marks the closing of the 9th Tranche United Nations Development Account project “Promoting Equality: Strengthening the Capacity of Select Developing Countries to Design and Implement Equality-oriented Public Policies and Programmes”, which is aimed at improving the awareness of the different dimensions of inequality, strengthening countries’ capacities to analyze and measure inequality, as well as at promoting the conceptualization, design and implementation of multidisciplinary public policies oriented towards greater socio-economic equality.
