The United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) has released a new report entitled, Pathway to Gender Equality, which outlines the importance of Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) and the Beijing Platform for Action in realizing the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

According to UNIFEM, the report identifies connecting points between the three processes with regard to monitoring and reporting. Further, it focuses on critical gender equality concerns for each MDG and identifies the specific measures governments have the duty to uphold in these areas. The report also provides useful gender equality resources for practitioners.
