UN Women and its partners, through the Women Count programme, have initiated primary data collection to provide up-to-date information on trends and analysis on a range of topics related to the gendered impact of COVID-19. As a result, UN Women commissioned Rapid Gender Assessment (RGA) surveys on the impacts of COVID-19 in more than 50 countries.
Monitoring how the results of the RGAs are used can demonstrate the relevance of data collected for improving the design and outcomes of COVID-19 programmes and interventions, policy- and decision-making. For this purpose, the Women Count programme has developed this guidance to document use cases of the data. This guidance document provides support for UN Women colleagues in Regional and Country Offices and others seeking to compile use cases or impact stories. It explains why monitoring use cases is important and offers a reference questionnaire to be administered to target respondent organizations, including tips and guidance.
