The United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD), in collaboration with Statistics South Africa, is organizing the 9th United Nations Global Forum on Gender Statistics in Johannesburg, South Africa. The event will take place on 29-31 August 2023.
The Forum will bring together producers and users of gender statistics from national and international statistical offices, other government agencies, international organizations, academia, civil society, and the donor community. On this occasion, the forum will focus ways to improve data and evidence on the growing challenges and opportunities offered by the care economy and its impact on gender equality. Panelists and audience will also strategize on how to make the best out of existing data, including by mainstreaming a gender lens into existing data processes. Additionally, the Forum will provide an opportunity to take stock and learn of good practices in gender statistics and data management from the African region.
