Mapping Gender and Disability Data in Georgia: Recommended Indicators and Actions
The lack of empirical data constrains Georgia in monitoring and evaluating its commitments to gender and disability-inclusive development and challenges the country to effectively plan and take action based on evidence.
The present document analyses the current situation of gender and disability data in Georgia, including existing and potential data sources. Based on this assessment, it then outlines a recommended minimum set of gender and disability indicators that can be used for tracking progress towards international and national commitments on gender equality and disability inclusion as well as policy and programme planning, monitoring and evaluation by governmental and non-governmental agencies. In addition to identifying the list of indicators, the document further recommends actions to be taken by data producers and users in order to improve access to quality data for gender and disability-inclusive policymaking in Georgia.
The document was developed by UN Women Georgia under the UN Joint Programme “Transforming Social Protection for Persons with Disabilities in Georgia” implemented in partnership with UNICEF, UNDP, OHCHR, UNFPA and WHO and generously supported by the Joint SDG Fund.
