Making Gender Statistics Meaningful on the Ground

24 February 2011, 8:30 am - 10:00 am
Venue: North Lawn Building, Conference Room D
United Nations, New York

This side event hopes to point out the gaps and challenges in meeting the gender data needs of national and regional development partners – both government and civil society – and to invite greater collaboration among sister UN Agencies and development partners in order to address them.

The side event will provide an opportunity for countries to present and exchange views on ongoing gender statistics programmes and for UN Agencies and development partners to present their ideas and current work on gender statistics. It will address issues of data consistency and comparability and discuss current partnerships in the context of three recent Global Fora on Gender Statistics, the publication of “The World’s Women 2010: Trends and Statistics” and the establishment of UN Women.
