Ensuring gender-sensitive implementation of the Post-2015 Development Framework (Post-2015 policy brief no.5)
The purpose of this policy brief is to offer stakeholders some suggestions on elements and data that may help them to assess whether they are implementing the new sustainable development framework in a gender-sensitive manner.
The aim of this policy brief is to highlight some linkages between gender and economics, especially trade, in the context of the post-2015 development agenda and propose future targets and indicators for the areas covered by Goals 3 and 8.

In turn, trade can play its role of “enabler” of development if flanking economic and social policies are in place.
