COVID-19 alert : Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 8th Global Forum on Gender Statistics has been postponed.

The 8th Global Forum on Gender Statistics will bring together around 200 producers and users of gender statistics from national and international statistical offices, other government agencies, international organizations, academia, civil society, private sector and the donor community. The Forum will be an opportunity to discuss ways to improve data and evidence for gender policies, in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

In particular, the Forum will: (a) review methodological developments for better gender statistics in many areas, including: time use and unpaid work; international migration; and gender identity; (b) take stock of national practices in measuring and monitoring gender concerns and in integrating data sources, including administrative records to fill in gender data gaps; and (d) learn about the latest research/assessment of progress towards gender equality, the use of geospatial information for gender analysis and the availability of disaggregated gender data, to ensure no one is left behind.
