How can we understand, identify, and respond to the ongoing challenge of producing policy-relevant data about the lives of women and girls?
Bridging the Gap Asia: Key Findings and Recommendations summarizes the findings in the report, Bridging the Gap: Mapping Gender Data Availability in Asia and the Pacific.
In this project, we set out to answer the following questions:
- Which domains of women’s and girls’ lives do we understand well from existing data, and which remain unclear because of missing or poor-quality data?
- What are the sources of available data and where can they be found in national and international databases? What can we learn from these patterns of availability?
- What can we learn from these five countries, including their national policies and programs, about closing systemic gender data gaps?
