An Analysis of the Correlation between the Different National Strategic Documents on Gender Equality in Meeting the Sustainable Development Goals
Gender equality is an issue which is being attached a great deal of importance in the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda (SDA). The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) treats gender issues in a sensitive manner while raising expectations that gender equality will be considered a priority within the new global sustainable development policy of countries. Within its national context, the Republic of Macedonia has been taking a strategic approach to ensuring gender equality by undertaking a series of significant measures to develop policies which are primarily outlined in the 2013-2020 Gender Equality Strategy (GES) and the 2013-2016 National Action Plan (NAP). The objective of this here research is to present an assessment of the correlation between the SDA and gender equality in the Republic of Macedonia by re-examining the approach taken at the national level and conducting an analysis of the national strategic documents, i.e. the GES and the NAP.
