ECLAC continued its advocacy role with respect to women’s rights in the region, through instruments like the Gender Equality Observatory for Latin America and the Caribbean. The Observatory was developed as a strategic tool that allows governments to monitor women’s economic, political and physical autonomy in line with the MDGs and through indicators commonly agreed on. A set of policy recommendations addressing the need to develop evidence and integrate a gender perspective in social protection policies is being implemented in many countries including policy reforms, labor policies, social protection pension schemes and monetary transfers with the support and technical assistance of ECLAC. In addition, at the request of the countries of Central America, a workshop was conducted to develop gender related statistics in the sub-region.
