The Global Agenda of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provides a great opportunity to achieve, in the next 15 years, reversing gender gaps and removing existing obstacles in the different spheres of human development. But in these efforts governments face some challenges. It is not easy to translate the SDGs into national development agendas. Likewise, the follow-up of the SDGs requires developing effective mechanisms to promote equality, on-discrimination, and the empowerment of women within the framework of harmonized agendas.

It is imperative to consolidate mechanisms that allow the achievement of essential objectives for the State to include equality as a central axis of its public policies. The first  step is the institutionalization of gender equality in the daily actions of the state operations to ensure that commitment is internalized and reflected in the mandates, regulations, processes and budgets of public institutions.  A second step  is the mainstreaming of gender issues so that the State positions itself as a central actor in the achievement of substantive equality.

This double process of institutionalization and mainstreaming will seek to develop clear and accessible tools and concepts to consolidate architectures and capacities for coordination, spaces for participation, development of programs and public policies within the framework of the SDG Agenda and indicators for monitoring and impact of public policies.

One of the greatest concerns to achieve an inclusive State concerns the processes and mechanisms to achieve better coordination between the different sectors, policies and programs. There are various international experiences that seek to install integrative structures, government institutions  and other forms of articulation within the State to avoid the fragmentation of policies. In the area of gender equality, Jordan has experiences of integration of perspective in public policy in different departments of the State institutions.

UNDP, together with Ministry of Environment, intends to roll out the Gender Equality Seal in Public Institutions as a tool to support and recognize the efforts made by public institutions towards the achievement of substantive equality between men and women. The  Gender Equality Seal for  Public Institutions  is the culmination of the efforts made in the implementation of Public Management Systems for Institutionalization and Gender Mainstreaming
