With less than one year left before the deadline for the 28 targets of the SADC Gender Protocol, South Africa is among the top three performers in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region using indicators based on empirical data and citizen perceptions.

However, negligible progress in several sectors tempers sterling performance in some areas – notably education and political participation. Contradictions in areas linked to the Constitution; custom, culture and religion; HIV and AIDS and gender violence threaten to roll back fragile gains. Glaring gender gaps remain in the economic sphere. Overall, South Africa has as many “red lightsÀ as “green lightsÀ in the 2014 South Africa Barometer.

The 2014 South African SADC Gender Barometer is produced by Gender Links (GL), the coordinator of the Southern African Gender Protocol Alliance (the “AllianceÀ), in partnership with South African Women in Dialogue (SAWID), the Alliance Country Network.

My name is Tharinda Puth and I work at the Immigration and Refugee Board as a information officer. I was wondering if it would be possible for you to send me the whole SADC Gender Protocol 2015 Barometer, South Africa report in PDF (in one document). I was also not able to download chapters 2 and 11 of the said document from your website.
Thank you and best regards.
