Abstract: Despite the progress that has been made in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), fragility and gender inequality risk undermining development in many countries and reversing the gains that have been made over the past decades. As debates around the post-2015 agenda continue, it is critical that these two issues are prioritised in any future goals, targets and indicators that are proposed, and that they are linked strategically to the implementation of UNSCR 1325 on Women, Peace and Security and the New Deal on Engagement in Fragile States. This paper highlights key recommendations and possible actions that could be taken over the coming months to ensure a more coordinated approach to addressing fragility and gender inequality in the post-MDG framework.
