Establishing gender economic governance as a fundamental pillar to the economy and sustainable development of all countries

Gender economic governance is imperative for the global economy. We agree and align our implementation efforts with the G20 who is responsible for making concrete progress recognizing this duty by committing to reducing the gender gap in labor market participation rates by 25% by 2025. The new economic and social contract needs to include a crosscutting gender perspective that will contribute to greater equity and sustainable growth.

Reaching the target is projected to increase countries GDP growth by up to UNPRECEDENTED levels

Implementing National Strategies through High Level Leadership & Management Frameworks

We translate decisions of UN Intergovernmental bodies into actual management frameworks on the ground supporting countries on the achievement of global priorities

Country ownership, alignment with national priorities, results‐orientation and mutual accountability among our national partners are key features of our strategic objectives


Leading and managing national capabilities for the attainment of the SDGs lies at the very core of our mandate. We work to assist Governments, Multinationals and International Players in the formulation and implementation of International Mechanisms through strategies, policies, structures, and processes, which will have system-wide effects. 


We agree on the G20 Ministers of Labour leadership commitment to reduce the gender gap in labour force participation. Our Policy implementation on inclusive economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all, which seeks to address gender inequalities at work, supports the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.


Positioning countries at the core of international competitiveness


"We support the rising aspirations of all countries to build the human capital needed for the economy of the future, in order to realize our common global vision for the achievement of sustainability worldwide"

The implementation of macroeconomic interventions to ensure the full participation mothers in the markets of the 21st century would close the gender pay gap in 141 countries. The world would generate $160 trillion in additional human capital wealth. We encourage and support investments at the national level to realize the rising aspirations of all countries to build the human capital needed for the economy of the future, in order to realize our common global vision for the achievement of sustainability worldwide.

About MOH.International


Establishing Countries at the Core of International Competitiveness

Countries with no gender gaps have the highest ratings for international competitiveness.  Advancing sustainable development by 2030 requires the recognition of the gender labour gap in work and employment and create a cohesive action-oriented plan that all stakeholders can support, a plan that challenges businesses and national governments to develop macro labour responsive implementations of the SDGs. We ensure that macroeconomic policies, legislation and national development priorities are gender equitable. Changing the law may be just a basic step in the struggle for gender parity at the social, political and economic reality, but it is a substantial step forward that can also significantly strengthen a nation’s economic growth.
