Since 2008 G20 country members have adopted a large number of High Level Principles, Statements, Toolkits, Roadmaps, Reports and Action Plans in order to address the major challenges global community is facing. This is a valuable starting point but now is time for the G20 to focus its energy on creating more enabling conditions for these commitments to be implemented and to follow up the already adopted ones by fostering concrete domestic measures.
In 2014, the G20 leaders agreed on the goal of reducing the gap in labour participation rates between men and women by 25 per cent by 2025, this commitment will will remain unfulfilled in 2025 unless each and every G20 country member adopts concrete and effective actions. That is why the C20, L20, S20, W20 and Y20, are jointly calling on implementation of existing commitments in order to address gender labour gaps
