Gender Attitudes in Azerbaijan

Trends and Challenges


The role of National Human Development Report (NHDR) in diffusing the concept of human development in Azerbaijan, with the first such publication issued in 1995, is crucial. This year, UNDP will focus on the aspect of gender, given that the Government has initiated developing a ten-year programme aimed at reducing poverty and enhancing economic development. With the financial support made available by the Embassy of Norway, UNDP will broadly address gender issues in Azerbaijan through piloting a survey on gender attitudes and eventual launching the 2005 NHDR reflecting findings of the survey, thereby stimulating public debate and triggering policy action for ensuring greater gender equality in the country.
