This note discusses W20’s contributions to the gender equality agenda and policies promoted by the G20 and the G20 member states. The first part analyses the progress made by G20 countries on gender equality as framed by W20 recommendations. The assessment focuses on improvements on the main pillars and relies on existing standardized indicators and research reports.3 The second part draws some lessons from the previous analysis, identifying several areas where the W20 Saudi Arabia could help strengthen the overall W20 mission as well as its effectiveness in advancing gender equity at the global level. Finally, the last part of the note identifies three areas of priority for the W20, hence offering some guidance on potential topics of discussion for the W20 Saudi Arabia.
