The Barometer comprises 15 country publications and one regional publication that has tracked progress in achieving the targets of the SADC Gender Protocol since 2009. The Southern Africa Gender and Development Index (SGDI) introduced in 2011 is based on empirical data of indicators which have increased over the years from 23 indicators to 36 indicators as of 2017. This is complemented by the Citizen Score which gives ordinary citizens an opportunity to hold their governments to account. Case studies of the SADC Gender Protocol @ Work provide qualitative insights on how the SADC Gender Protocol is used as a tool to promote gender equality. SADC Heads of States adopted a Post-2015 Protocol in August 2016, which has allowed the Alliance to update and strengthen its research tools used in the Barometer.
Now in its ninth edition, the 2017 Barometer is the first assessment of the Post-2015 SADC Gender Protocol. Moving with the times, the Alliance has expanded the two key main yardsticks in the Barometer: the SADC Gender and Development Index (SGDI) and the Citizen Score Card (CSC). The Barometer incorporates many MERF and SDG indicators, as well as its own unique measures of voice, choice and control. The Barometer also introduces the Gender Responsive Assessment of Constitutions and Laws conducted by Alliance experts and networks around the region. Download the Barometer 2017 Executive Summary.
