Statistics and indicators

Indicators are used to measure and monitor the achievement of expected results and targets and help establish the “success” of our work. They also serve to produce knowledge on the basis of which management and policy-makers can make informed decisions.

If indicators are not gender-responsive (ie. designed to capture the gender gaps we are seeking to eliminate), how can we realistically expect to effectively reduce them.
