The Observatory of Gender Equality is a tool of the Department of Equality, Economic Development and Tourism. It fits within the frame of gender mainstreaming and it has a double aim: on the one hand to analyse and shed light on the gender gap which appears in all fields of life; and on the other hand, to create and design tools to mainstream the gender approach in local policies. The Observatory works on three action lines: research, training and coordination and participation.
