The Forum will be held in Helsinki, Finland from 24 to 26 October 2016 and will focus on data and statistical methods for the follow up and review of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) indicators framework, from a gender perspective. Gender Statistics Forums have proven to be an important opportunity to take stock of progress towards the achievement of gender equality and women’s empowerment and to review data availability, data challenges and countries’ capacities to measure and monitor gender-relevant issues. Forums are also the ideal venues to share and discuss initiatives and tools related to the collection, production, dissemination and use of gender statistics.
