We know all too well that the multiple crises facing the world – food insecurity, energy access, global health, conflict and climate change – have disproportionate impacts on the most vulnerable. The frightening reality is that these crises are also splintering our efforts to address critical social development challenges, such as the stubborn gaps that exist between women and men. At the current rate, we will need 286 years to close gaps in legal protection and 169 years to reach gender parity in economic participation and opportunity. This is decades longer than we have to curb the worst impacts of climate change.
