In support of good practices to strengthen civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS), the authors of a paper in the latest Knowledge Brief have created a reference guide identifying key gender barriers to registration of birth and deaths, and mapping supply-side issues to needed demand-side research.
Spanning the 17 goals, 169 targets and 232 indicators of the SDGs is a promise “to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.” Advancing that goal touches many domains – from labor opportunities to reduced maternal mortality to increased representation in political life. This paper finds that the current gap in financing the needed core data on gender in lower-income countries is between $170M-$240M a year between now and 2030. It suggests a way to increase total funding and improve existing funding flows for higher impact.
This brochure summarizes the key findings of the full “Bridging the Gap: Mapping Gender Data Availability in Africa” technical report and efforts to understand, identify, and respond to the challenge having policy-relevant data about the lives of women and girls in Africa.
