Pakistan Ranked at 151 Out of 153 in Gender Inequality: Global Goals 

Pakistan ranks at 151st out of 153 countries in gender inequality, according to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”.

Ms. Naz was speaking at a web-based panel discussion on “Pakistan and SDGs Targets” organised here by the Institute of Strategic Studies (ISS). The discussion was moderated by Dr. Neelum Nigar,

Ms Naz was of the view that there is an increased need to engage men in the country and educating them to prevent violence against women as it was one of the major components of the SDGs.

Social policy advisor Nadeem Ahmed observed that the current SDG framework provided enormous opportunities to various sectors to participate in the development of Pakistan and move forward. Under the current government, the SDG task force and support units were established at the Federal as well as at provincial levels for effective implementation of the devised policies.

Khalid Mahmood, Chairman of the Board of Governors, concluded the panel discussion by saying that the world community, regardless of differences, was putting up considerable effort in mobilising resources to mould public opinion in order to achieve socio-economic progress.
