  • Seeking seek inputs from those key relevant partners to foster better use of gender data in SDGs monitoring and to identify existing technical obstacles and opportunities around data integration and cross-sectoral collaboration between the various actors at the national and local levels.
  • Providing the opportunity for both data producers (from National Statistical Office and Ministries) and data users (e.g. national partners, International Organisations) to exchange key lessons learned and good practices in relation to gender responsive data and data collection and dissemination tools to monitor SDGs.
