Contributing to SDGs 3 (Good Health and Well-being), 5 (Gender Equality) and 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure), this Elsevier Atlas Award winning research explores the role of telemedicine (the delivery of healthcare services from a distance using information and communication technologies) in reducing gender-based barriers women and girls in rural areas of Nepal face to access healthcare services.
This paper presents an intersectional analysis of the gender-water-tourism nexus. Based in an emergent tourism destination, Labuan Bajo, Indonesia, it goes beyond an analysis of how women bear the brunt of burdens related to water scarcity, and examines which women, why and how it affects their daily lives. This relates to SDG 5 Gender equality and SDG 6 clean water and sanitation.
This paper extends the debate about redressing persistent gender inequality in Australia by examining the relationship between labour productivity and the wage gap in all states and territories (1986–2013). It is a critical case study as Australia’s widening gender wage gap is contrary to other developed nations. This article looks to address SDG 5 (gender equality) and SDG10 (reduced inequality).
Gender differences in child development have been extensively studied in high-income countries, but few data are available from low-income and middle-income countries. In this study of six countries across the Asia-Pacific region, researchers address this research gap, and find that girls aged 3–5 years outperform boys in developmental tests. The development of girls is anticipated to provide greater opportunities for economic development and will be key to achieving SDG 5.
Advancing SDG 1 no poverty and SDG 8 decent work and economic growth, this study examines trauma theory in the context of family separation due to Filipino labour migration. The experiences documented build a larger global vision of the misery of long-term family separation and prolonged labour migration experienced by Filipino labour migrants around the world.
This study makes important links between SDG 2, SDG 5 and SDG 13 through its examination of how husbands and wives within the same household perceive climate risks and use group-based approaches as coping strategies. The findings indicate that options for adapting to climate change closely interplay with husbands' and wives' roles and responsibilities, social norms, risk perceptions and access to resources. A higher percentage of wives were found to adopt crop-related strategies, whereas husbands employ livestock- and agroforestry-related strategies.
Goal 5 target 5 is concerned with women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political, economic and public life. This study advances this target by studying gender diversity in medium to large organisations and asserts that diversity and equality management (DEM) systems are positively associated with performance and this relationship is moderated by lower to middle management gender diversity.

This article is taken from the series "The View From Here", in which farming women from around the world give an insight into rural life. From the challenges of making an income to support the family and local economy to dealing with extreme weather and untamed lands, these women give their unique perspective on working in a male-dominated industry. It helps to highlight the importance of SDG 5, Gender equality.
SDG 5 aims to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. But how do you measure empowerment? In The Lancet Global Health, Fernanda Ewerling and colleagues use a set of questions from surveys routinely carried out in Africa to develop a survey-based women’s empowerment index (SWPER). The questions include whether a woman thinks being beaten by her husband is justified and who makes household decisions. The authors validate the index externally and demonstrate that it can be used to compare gender empowerment across African countries.

This paper looks at the gender gap in research evaluation, using detailed data on 180,000 research papers evaluated during the Italian national research assessment (VQR 2004–2010) conducted by the Agency for the Evaluation of Universities and Research Institutes (Anvur). The most important empirical finding is that there is a significant gender gap in research evaluation. This paper contributes in particular to SDG 5 and 9.
