The study proposes a Gender Equality Index for Country Regions (GEICR), which aims to provide a comprehensive approach to the quantitative measurement of gender equality and social development in a sub-national setting and to show how resources are distributed between women and men. The GEICR includes four determinants, called pillars, twelve factors, and for each factor, a set of indicators. This approach was applied in 25 regions of Peru and the results show high statistical consistency with other similar measurements. The GEICR can be used by policymakers and other relevant stakeholders for policy and strategy design and development at the national and international levels, which is why it is an important tool for International Economic Diplomacy.
