U.S. Foreign Assistance Agencies Should Address Data Gaps In Gender Programming, Investments, Roundtable Says

Brookings Institution’s “Future Development”: A leap in gender equality begins with better data
George Ingram, senior fellow in global economy and development with Brookings, and Nora O’Connell, associate vice president of public policy and advocacy with Save the Children, write, “While the movement for global gender equality is growing — including prominent placement at the recent World Bank and International Monetary Fund Spring Meetings — major gaps remain. If addressed, this could unleash significant progress. One of the first gaps that U.S. foreign assistance agencies should tackle is the lack of uniformity on the gender equality data that they collect and use.” The authors discuss three actions resulting from a recent roundtable “to examine the data gaps in gender programming and investments” (5/4).
