Date of event: Friday, June 25, 2021 - 09:30 to 12:00

Where: Online

Description: 

The initial SDG Gender Index constructed by EM2030 was the subject of a JRC audit and launched in 2019. This new version builds upon the first iteration of the Index, applies recommendations from the JRC audit, but also changes in substantive ways from the earlier version. Anticipated changes include addition of new indicators, revised approaches to aggregation and imputation and benchmarking of progress based on time series data. The index will continue to cover gender equality across 14 of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Societal impact:

EM2030 works with its partners (e.g., Gates Foundation, Plan International, One Foundation, etc.) at a global, regional and national level to improve the uptake of the SDG Gender Index for use as an accountability mechanism and source of evidence for advocacy and influencing for progress towards gender equality across a wide range of issues high on the development agenda. National and regional advocates have used the findings to raise awareness and influence policies in relation to women’s political participation, secondary education, sexual and reproductive health, child marriage, gender-based violence amongst other issues. Equal Measures 2030 prepares flagship reports on the global state of gender equality using the Index to rank and benchmark countries that are used widely in advocacy efforts by global gender stakeholders
