Regional Workshop on Gender Statistics and SDG Indicators 5.a.1 and 5.a.2

10/12/2018-13/12/2018 Bangkok, Thailand


A capacity development workshop on gender and land related data will be held in Bangkok, Thailand on 10-13 December 2018. The workshop will be jointly organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the Asia office of the Global Strategy to Improve Agricultural and Rural Statistics (GSARS) and the Statistical Institute for Asia and the Pacific (SIAP). This initiative represents an opportunity to raise awareness on the importance of gender disaggregated agricultural and rural statistics and more generally gender sensitive data, as well as to provide guidance to countries to compile and monitor Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicators 5.a.1 and 5.a.2. Moreover, participants will gain a better on how statistical and qualitative legal evidence can be used to influence government policies and decision-making. The two closely related SDG indicators are part of the SDG indicator monitoring and evaluation framework for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda), designed to help countries assess their progress towards advancing women’s land rights.
