IV Plano Nacional para a Igualdade, Género, Cidadania e não Discriminação (2011 -2013)
Fourth National Plan for Equality, Gender, Citizenship and non-Discrimination (2011-2013)
This Plan is considered to be an instrument of public policies to promote equality and to adopt gender mainstreaming that encompasses the commitments assumed by Portugal at national and international level. The 4th Plan assumes equality as a factor of competitiveness and development by reinforcing the integration of the gender dimension (as a requirement for good governance) in all policy domains and within the social reality, along with the implementation of specific actions (including positive actions) to overcome inequalities that affect particularly women. The 4th Plan defines 14 strategic areas of intervention broken down in 97 measures.
