Whether by a private company, an international NGO, a national or local government, or a philanthropic organisation, the effectiveness of efforts to address gender inequality cannot be monitored or evaluated if solid data is not available. Areas of intersection, such as the disproportionate effect of the COVID-19 or climate crises on women, are woefully understudied and undercounted, meaning that targeted interventions cannot be designed. Likewise, long term cause and effect such as discriminatory social institutions or the impact of infertility on national GDP cannot be analysed without consistent and accurate access to open gender data. More and better gender data can lead to better solutions and improve accountability; solutions that have the power to unlock $3 trillion in economic potential across the global economy.

 

This DEV Talk will bring together experts and private sector and government representatives, to discuss why the lack of data about women’s lives and livelihoods around the world persists despite recent efforts and a global recognition of the importance of the issue. They will explore what can be done to increase awareness, prioritisation, and support from multilateral partnerships to unlock the potential of gender data for the COVID-19 recovery and beyond.
