Union government to gear up for gender indicators data collection for Sustainable Development Goals
The GOI is going to organise a two-day 'National Consultation on Data Generation for Gender Indicators of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)' in collaboration with UN Women on 21-22 August in New Delhi, said an official release.

The overall purpose is to gather ideas for a roadmap of action on generating data for gender indicators for SDGs, it added

According to the release, the consultation will enhance ownership of data generation and data utilisation, by providing a platform for the stakeholders to discuss the way forward on how to address the gaps in gender indicators for SDGs.

It is being hoped that the 'multi-stakeholder consultation will promote a common understanding and harmonized approach to enhancing collaboration on gender statistics'.

Earlier in 2015, the UN Women and UNFPA had developed a 'Framework and Roadmap for Collecting Statistics on the Status of Women in India'.

The deliberations at the event would 'seek recommendations for facilitating user-producer dialogues to increase accessibility, quality and demand for gender statistics, through engagements of statistical offices with policy and decision makers'.

Led by MoSPI, Central Ministries, officers from the State/UT Governments, namely from the Directorate of Economics & Statistics and Department concerned with women's issues would take part in the event along with representatives of the UN in India, research organisations and civil society.
