ABSTRACT
The aims of development do not stop at poverty reduction: gender equality, human rights and environmental sustainability are also fundamental development objectives. These are not just goals -- they are also important drivers of development in their own right. "Forget China, India and the Internet," says The Economist, "economic growth is driven by women." Still, for all the evidence of the benefits of incorporating these broader goals into the development agenda, it has often been difficult to do so in practice. That may be changing: evidence is emerging of how the implementation of the Paris Declaration can advance gender equality, human rights and environmental sustainability. Drawing on case studies from a number of countries, this chapter introduces five useful lessons on how the Paris Declaration can be applied in this way.
