UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace, and security.
To respond to the need to produce relevant and quality gender-sensitive indicators to monitor the SDGs, and also harnessing the current momentum and support for the SDGs and for gender statistics more broadly, UN Women has launched 5 years Flagship Programme Initiative Making Every Woman and Girls Count (MEWGC), that aims to affect a radical shift in the production, availability, accessibility and use of quality data and statistics on key aspects of gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Since 2018 the UN Women Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia (ECA RO) has been implementing the regional project and providing technical support to countries on gender statistics to strengthen regional-level collaboration with key partners in order to better contribute to SDGs monitoring at the country and regional levels. In ECA region countries are at varying stages of nationalizing and assessing current capacity to produce and use the statistics needed to monitor SDG progress and gender-responsive SDGs prioritization and monitoring continue to be a challenge in the region.
Limited data dissemination and communication capacities of national statistical systems (NSS) represent one of the key challenges for gender statistics. To respond to this challenge, United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) in partnership with UN Women established a task force to develop guidance for national statistical offices and other producers of gender statistics on the communication of gender statistics.
The task force has identified two outputs:
The target audience of the products will be primarily those working on communications in statistical offices. UN Women ECA RO will be cooperating with UNECE Task Force on Communicating Gender Statistics to develop a website to serve as a repository of good practices on the communication of gender statistics.
