Following the Money: How One Organization is Using Data to Improve Aid Transparency on Gender Equality Programs￼
Stakeholders continue to dedicate financial resources to achieve gender equality—but financing alone is not enough. To make meaningful progress on gender equality and improve the efficacy of development aid, financing must be paired with comprehensive technical data on 1) where resources are going; 2) what these resources are used for; 3) how they are used and who benefits from them; and 4) what results they produce. Without this information, it is difficult to understand the impact of gender equality programs and improve the lives of women and girls.
Gender data is a challenge to environmentalists—it can be difficult to collect, it requires dedicated financing, and for many years, there was no clear space that brought people and resources together to address it. This was until the Gender and Environment Data Alliance (GEDA) formed to advance gender-just climate action. Formed by the Women’s Environment and Development Organization (WEDO) and International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the group brings together a coalition of diverse multi-stakeholder partners to improve accessibility, understanding and application of gender-environment data.
