Researching role of women in development management

Synonyms:
Studying gender in development
Description:
Identify women as a specific target for economic and social development plans. Assess the implementation and performance of such plans against criteria relevant to women's conditions. Set up research and documentation units to provide statistics of separate and detailed data on both sexes. Formulate standardized indicators to assess women's conditions. Such data would serve as a means of following up trends in the conditions of women and for identification of peculiarities within the framework of general, sectoral and local planning.
Implementation:
This strategy features in the framework of Agenda 21 as formulated at UNCED (Rio de Janeiro, 1992), now coordinated by the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development and implemented through national and local authorities.
Claim:
Women form a central element in all forms of sustainable development, capacity building and conflict resolution, as well as in the battle for social, economic and political justice, such that women and men must have equal control of, and access to, land and resources, and equal control of economic and political power to achieve long-term sustainable and viable development.
