Event description

Description

How are policymakers prioritising gender equality in their efforts to implement the SDGs? And do they have the right information and data to guide their decision making?

This Equal Measures 2030 side event will profile the key interim findings of a survey of policymakers in 5 focus countries - Kenya, Senegal, India, Indonesia, and Colombia. During the event, government representatives and national civil society organisations will reflect on what is - and isn't - surprising in the results and what this means for stakeholders working to achieve the SDGs for all girls and women by 2030.

  • Claire Melamed, Executive Director, Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data
  • Philip Thigo, Head of Data and Innovation, Office of the Deputy President, Kenya
