The aim of this policy brief is to guide efforts to promote gender equality in policy and programming when working towards the following five long-term objectives of the Eastern Partnership: (i) together for resilient, sustainable and integrated economies; (ii) together for accountable institutions, the rule of law and security; (iii) together towards environmental and climate resilience; (iv) together for a resilient digital transformation; and (v) together for resilient, gender-equal, fair and inclusive societies. For each long-term objective, this document provides an overview of key gender inequalities. It proposes possible solutions and actions that will help to close remaining gender gaps and improve the lives of women and men in Eastern partner countries.
This document was produced in the framework of the EU4 Gender Equality Reform Helpdesk project, funded by the European Union and implemented by Niras.
