About the event

How do we measure overall progress on the SDGs, especially on leaving no-one behind and ensuring gender and intergenerational perspectives, when there are hundreds of indicators? How do all the actors involved in the SDGs, navigate the many sources and different kinds of data available and understand what they mean? How can we target capacity building in UNECE countries to fill gaps in SDG data?  

This session looked at these issues from the viewpoint of the different players (policy makers, statisticians, media, researchers, civil society and the private sector) in the data ecosystem. It showcased examples of how data producers can communicate the right data effectively to support actions from a human rights and gender equality perspective. It also allowed for a discussion of what data users need to help them address their questions and better translate the SDG indicators into information.
