Gender inequality and discrimination challenges the social economic and environmental sustainability in achieving inclusive development. The absence of a gender-aware perspective in the virtuous development issue is often justified from the premise that development is a male-dominated domain. Many a times, it is assumed that when given control of resources, women are always likely to support policies that give significance to equality, peace and sustainable development and those women have an inherent concern for inclusive development. This books opines gender sensitive research can help to make sure that the conditions for achieving the sustainable development goals. This is because gender concerns are at times equated with women's concerns and women's empowerment is unspoken to be 'implementable as top-down essentialism' without taking into deliberation the differences among men and women in their engagement with the developmental process. This book will be useful to the researches, policymakers and NGOs working on gender issues.
