• Transforming the Data Landscape: Solutions to Close Gender Data Gaps

    Despite decades of investment in promoting gender equality, gender data gaps continue to impede understanding of the lived experiences of women and girls. A lack ofsex-disaggregated data encumbers efforts to craft and monitor the effectiveness ofevidence-based policies that address gender inequalities. Moreover, even where thesedata are available, they are often underutilized. Transforming the Data Landscape: Solutions to Close Gender Data Gaps shifts the conversation from identifying gender data problems to finding practical solutions to gender data gaps. This report and the accompanying Gender Data Solutions Inventory document innovative solutions that have emerged in the last five years. The inventory catalogs 142 solutions that are practical and, in many instances, scalable across six development sectors(economic opportunity, education, environment, health, human security and public participation). It also includescross-domain solutions focused on improving the governance of statistical systems andencouraging the use of data and statistics by policymakers and the public. Read the report.
