Overcoming gender data gaps in the Caribbean to accelerate the implementation of the SDGs

The objective of these workshops is to promote the use of gender statistics for policymaking to ensure that no women and girls are left behind, in keeping with the commitments set out in the Regional Gender Agenda and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The focus of these workshops will be on mapping existing data and identifying gaps in the production of gender statistics, and providing recommendations regarding the production, development, systematisation and dissemination of statistical information and gender-sensitive indicators.
