The SADC Gender Protocol (SGP) sets out 28 targets to be achieved by 2015. Mauritius and Botswana are the only two countries in the SADC region that have not yet signed. Mauritius has not signed because the country had reservations about the clause on affirmative action because its constitution does not allow discrimination.

However, since Mauritius amended its Constitution so that parliament could pass the 2011 Local Government Act, gender activists including Gender Links (GL) remain hopeful that Mauritius will sign the Protocol.
