- Disappointing in terms of progress on SDG5 and on the gender equality related targets scattered across several other SDGs
- Gender biased in the strategic approaches and analyses used to prioritise Goals and Targets for implementation, e.g. excluding or very narrowly perceiving the influence of SDG5 in the models of SDG interactions
- Oblivious of, or disconnected from gender research and expertise when assessing co-benefits and trade-offs of implementation options, e.g. overlooking the benefits of mainstreaming gender into institutions that are co-operating and partnering for implementation actions
- Not recognising biological (sex) characteristics as an important factor in the maintenance of environmental wellbeing by controlling species reproduction and interspecies dynamics, and overlooking how sex in combination with gender impact on the management of natural environments
