Dr. Indira highlighted the interconnectivity between gender equality and sustainable development. She about three important reasons to link gender equality and sustainable development; firstly, the moral-ethical imperative, second being the disproportionate impact of environmental, social and economic shock on men and women and lastly, because of the growing evidence of synergy between gender equality and sustainable development.

It is wise to avoid losses due to inequal opportunities by bridging the gender gap through acceptance and transformation, said Dr. M. Indira.
