In 2016, the ambitious 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were launched to succeed the 8 Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that ended in 2015. The SDGs besides having a gender equality goal, every other goal has a gender dimension in it. In implementation of the SDGs, development research led by science is essential in providing information based on evidence through data gathering. Scientific research have proved that gender norms affect who does the research, how research is prioritized, how the research is designed and conducted, and how data is interpreted and shared as well as the impact of the research at the community level and globally. In a situation where research is gender subjective, the consequence will escalate to formulation of policies, legal frameworks and laws that are not gender inclusive thereby perpetuating gender inequality in the society.
Integrating gender into scientific research will improve the quality and relevance of research, lead to new ideas and ways of thinking about issues, and new interpretations of data resulting to possible innovations for men and women.
