Indicators to drive progress toward meeting gender-environment linked goals

Limited collection, dissemination and application of gender-environment statistics affect the ability of decision makers and practitioners to develop and adopt well-informed and effective policies and programming. Working with partners from across the environment sector, IUCN advises and shapes gender indicators and data collection to unlock measurable transformative action.

Key indicator and statistics resource

IUCN’s partnership with the UN Environment Programme on gender and environment statistics underpins much of IUCN’s work on advising strengthened and new indicators to measure information for action and SDG achievements. IUCN provides tailored technical assistance to partners and projects, reviewing and advising on relevant indicators and methodologies.

Advancing data through partnerships

In recent years, IUCN has partnered with diverse organizations to build tailored data and analyses for use in policymaking, implementation, and monitoring, evaluation and learning.

Gender and environment data and information is critical for measuring progress and informing action on gender-responsive sustainable development.
