About the product

The member countries of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean have called for an integrated approach to development. They have recognized that to achieve development with equity, it is essential to apply a gender perspective to public-policy formation. This publication describes how and to what extent the region's governments have built the concern for gender equity into economic and labour market policies. It looks at sectoral and interinstitutional mechanisms, legal provisions, programmes and projects, technical resources and pending issues.
