Executive Summary

The thematic analysis of the SIGI 2023 Global Report: Gender Equality in Times of Crisis stresses the pivotal role women can play in climate change mitigation and adaptation, making the case to improve the response to climate change by empowering women as agents of change. However, exploiting this window of opportunity requires to address the root causes of gender inequality. Building on the fifth edition of the Social Institutions and Gender Index (SIGI), the report outlines these causes and provides evidence of their impacts on girls’ and women’s empowerment and agency, in all aspects of their lives.

The SIGI is a global public good. It supports both OECD and non-OECD countries in designing transformative policies to address these fundamental barriers to gender equality and unleash women’s and girls’ potential, for the benefit of all.
