Swaziland: SADC Gender Protocol 2012 Barometer - Swaziland


This is the fourth annual tracking report of Swaziland's performance against the 28 targets of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Protocol on Gender and Development set for 2015. Swaziland signed the SADC Gender Protocol in 2008.

In September 2012 the country ratified and was the eight SADC country to deposit its instruments of ratification with the SADC Secretariat.

The Southern African Gender Protocol Alliance tracks the country's progress using two measures: the SADC Gender and Development Index (SGDI), introduced in 2011, and the complementary Citizen Score Card (CSC) that has been running for four years. Both measures are important; while the SGDI is an empirical measure, the CSC is a qualitative measure that gauges citizens' perceptions of the country's achievements against the 28 targets.
