African Gender Scorecard

The African Gender Scorecard is a user-friendly action tool whose main goal is to provide the African Union Commission (AUC) and the Member States with an easy-to-use monitoring and accountability tool to assess progress made in implementing their regional and global gender equality and women’s empowerment commitments. The Scorecard is also a gender-responsive policy-making tool that has the potential to support countries in addressing gender dimensions in policies and programs for achieving the 7 aspirations of Agenda 2063, which is the continent’s development framework for transforming Africa into a prosperous continent based on inclusive growth, sustainable development, good governance, democracy, as well as respect for human rights, justice and the rule of law.
