Gender and CRVS

This series of knowledge briefs looks at gender bias and barriers in civil registration and vital statistics.  Published quarterly in 2019 by The Centre of Excellence for CRVS Systems in partnership with ODW, 12 papers in the 3 briefs will offer in-depth case studies, findings, and recommendations on gender data gaps, social protection, legal frameworks, and rights protections for women and girls.


Beyond the Numbers: Harnessing Data for the SDGs

Beyond the Numbers is a five-part webinar series designed as an opportunity for development, data and policy experts to interact with practitioners concerning the latest advancements in development data. The series is offered in partnership by PARIS21Cepei  and Open Data Watch.


Open Data Watch is an international, non-profit organization working at the intersection of open data and official statistics. Our work supports the implementation of change in the production and management of official statistical data. Concentrating efforts in three areas — policy advice, data support, and monitoring — ODW seeks to make development data better and more accessible for increased use and impact. An example of the interaction between these workstreams, the Open Data Inventory (ODIN) provides in-depth annual assessments of coverage and openness that countries can then use to identify and address data gaps. Only with high-quality and open data can international organizations, governments, and citizens solve the challenges of measuring and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
