Looking ahead to Phase II

Phase II will be implemented from January 2022 – December 2025, across 6 regions and over 73 countries. Like Phase I, Phase II will contribute to driving results across the same three Outcome areas: i) creating an enabling environment, ii) increasing the production of gender data and iii) improving data accessibility and use. Building on Phase I, Phase II will put special emphasis on using gender data to inform policy and decision making to generate greater, positive policy impact for the lives of women and girls.

Phase II focuses on four key thematic areas: women’s economic empowerment (including time use surveys and data on land ownership), violence against women, gender data on the environment and governance and participation. In these thematic areas, Women Count will focus on increasing access to modern technologies and administrative data systems and supporting multilevel data disaggregation and intersectional analysis.
