This overview presents lessons and results of specific relevance to shaping the post-2015 development framework. It contains lessons to enhance knowledge of both why results for gender equality and women’s empowerment are critical to advance an overall development agenda, as well as practical examples of how to make this a reality.

As a result of the joint programmes, 20 promising practices have been identified.
