“Promoting equality. An inter-regional perspective”: Joint Project launched in ECLAC

eclacjun18

The Regional Commissions have produced the joint report “Promoting equality: An interregional perspective”, which was launched by the ECLAC Executive Secretary during the last week of June 2018 in the framework of  Interregional Expert Group Meeting “Placing equality at the centre of the 2030 Agenda”.

The meeting was the final activity of the interregional project “Promoting equality: Strengthening the Capacity of Select Developing Countries to Design and Implement Equality-oriented Public Policies and Programmes”, financed by the UN Development Account, coordinated by ECLAC and jointly implemented with all Regional Commissions during the period 2014-2018.

The report synthesizes regional findings on the adverse social, environmental and economic consequences of inequality and stresses that promoting greater equality through adequate social protection, health, education, labour and fiscal policies not only helps to safeguard the economic, social and cultural rights of all people, but also fosters growth, development and greater social justice.
