The Gender Dimension in Sustainability Policies and Their Evaluation

Special Issue

To overcome the current challenges caused by climate change and COVID-19, societal as well as economic transformation are necessary. In order to prevent the unintended consequences of policies aiming at transformation, it is necessary to take a comprehensive perspective which pursues several SDGs simultaneously. The World in 2050 report (2018: 5) formulates as one of its key messages that transformations to achieve the sustainable development goals require a holistic perspective. “The 2030 Agenda is holistic with deep and complex interactions across the SDG domains. (…) Focusing on individual or selected SDGs—be this during policy analysis or implementation—comes with the danger of adverse side effects related to other SDG domains or missing out and potential synergies and the resulting multiple co-benefits.”

A main driver for societal change in the recent past can be attributed to women—their increasing participation in education and employment, their claim for an equal share of resources and the equal appreciation of their contribution. Developing just solutions combatting the socio-ecological crisis also requires the inclusion of and contribution to women. At the political level, this is reflected in the formulation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as one of the 17 SDGs focuses on gender equality—mainly on equality between women and men. The other SDGs contain a gender dimension which must not be overlooked (Lee, Pollitzer 2020). Furthermore, a broad consensus is reached in science and innovation policy that engaging diverse social groups has a positive impact on policy making as well as innovation (EC 2020).
