The Asia-Pacific Stats Café Series on "Bridging the Gap: Mapping Gender Data Availability in Asia and the Pacific" will be held on Monday, 20 September 2021, 12:00-13:00 (GMT+7). Verify your time here.
The report Bridging the Gap: Mapping Gender Data Availability in Asia and the Pacific traces the availability and quality of data for 98 gender-relevant indicators across key domains such as health, education, economic empowerment, political participation, human security, and environment. The study, covering five countries in Asia and the Pacific, uses a combined set of 32 SDG indicators identified by UN Women as gender-relevant, 59 SDG indicators identified by Open Data Watch as being capable of sex-disaggregation or of other gender relevance, and 7 indicators suggested by the UN Women’s publication Turning Promises into Action (2018).
This Stats Café aims to celebrate the launch of the report and raise awareness about progress in gender data availability, the data needed, gaps which may exist and how these gaps may be narrowed.
