The project is a joint effort of UNCTAD, ECA and ECE to develop a coherent approach to measuring the impact of trade on gender equality using official statistics and building on the existing statistical data and capacity of countries. The expected result will be an enhanced capacity of national statistical authorities to collate and disseminate data and statistics for policy makers for more gender-responsive trade policy. In the longer term, the project will enable a more coherent review of progress towards inclusive trade policy and equitable economic development as part of the 2030 Agenda. The main objectif is to strengthen the capacity of selected countries in Africa, the Caucasus and Central Asia to develop and use statistics for more gender-responsive trade policies.
