Policy Brief on Afghanistan and SDG5

Last year, the Taliban resurgence affected the lives of millions of Afghan women and girls. Marking the 2022 International Women’s Day, the CoD is pleased to launch its Policy Brief on Afghanistan. Developed by Ms. Clare Hutchinson, former NATO Secretary General’s Special Representative for Women, Peace, and Security, the brief outlines the progress and challenges to implementing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in Afghanistan until August 2021, particularly SDG5 on gender equality. Based on conversations with Afghans in the country and the diaspora, it also provides recommendations and actions.
