This reference book for Gender Ministers provides a snapshot account of the Commonwealth's achievements in promoting gender equality and records the advances made by women from 1995-2005. The publication highlights the work of 53 member countries and partner organisations across the Commonwealth. The country profiles and regional reports will enable policy-makers, development practitioners and partner organisations to build on achievements and learn from the challenges encountered. The publication also identifies emerging issues that need to be addressed by the Commonwealth in the decade ahead.

Progress on non-income poverty goals has been considerably slower.
