This report on "Gender Equality, Poverty Reduction and the Achievement of the Millennium Development Goals in the Caribbean Region" seeks to highlight the progress made during the period 2007-2011 and identify gaps that need to be closed if the MDGs are to be realized by the 2015 deadline or very soon thereafter. It is divided into 10 sections: Section one is an introduction to the report; section two addresses the issues of gender and poverty and their impact on the other MDGs: Section three deals with Millennium Development Goals achievement in the Caribbean; section four examines Progress Made Toward the Achievement of the MDGs; Section five addresses Challenges Faced by States in the Achievement of the MDGs; and Section six presents Necessary Actions to be Taken. Section seven presents Recommendations for the Way Forward, Section eight presents Recommendations for the Alleviation of poverty; Section nine presents Priority Areas for the Realization of Gender Equality and Poverty Reduction, and Section ten concludes the report.
