To get to the future with substantive change and accomplish the 2030 Agenda, we will have to drastically change the current situation and encourage for substantive equality at all levels.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • Foster gender equality in UNCTAD’s recruitment and promotions – when equally qualified, we recruit the individual of the under-represented gender. - Finalization of UNCTAD implementation plan for the SG Gender Parity Strategy

  • Mainstream gender in all of UNCTAD’s flagship publications, and review, with the help of the network of gender focal points of UNCTAD, all UNCTAD’s technical assistance programmes and mainstream gender in them. - 100 % of flagship reports address gender issues in a meaningful way - 100 % of new technical cooperation projects cleared by the Divisional Gender Focal Points
