Event description

The three-day workshop is aimed at strengthening national capacity to produce time use statistics on unpaid domestic and care work, and enhance monitoring and reporting of relevant Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicators. Information about the time people spend in paid and unpaid work, and its contribution to economic growth and wellbeing, are essential for policymaking, and a global commitment to gender equality in the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. SDG 5 calls for recognizing, reducing and redistributing unpaid care work as a condition for achieving gender equality.

Participants include practitioners from national statistical offices working on the planning and designing of survey methodology, data collection, and processing of Time Use Survey (TUS), and experts from National Women’s Machineries from Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, Central Asian countries, and Bangladesh.

The Regional Workshop on Time Use Surveys is organized by UN Women’s gender data programme, Women Count, which aims to support governments in addressing national gender data gaps, meeting policy and reporting commitments.
