The challenges of effectively monitoring the SDGs from a gender perspective cannot be overstated. Responding to the challenges, but also harnessing the current momentum and support for the SDGs and for gender statistics more broadly, the Flagship Programme Initiative Making Every Woman and Count (referred to in this concept note as Better Production and Use of Gender Statistics for Evidence-Based Localization of the SDGs) aims to affect a radical shift in the production, availability, accessibility and use of quality data and statistics on key aspects of gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Working with partner governments, international agencies and other actors, the proposed programme will achieve results in three interlinked areas of work:
- Enabling environment
- Data production
- Data accessibility
This concept note outlines the details of the strategy for change and the implementation arrangements for the programme, along with a proposed budget.
