This toolkit aims to support statistical systems to increase the understanding and use of gender statistics by government officials and other development practitioners. It has been developed for countries in Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia and builds on the work to strengthen gender statistics across this region. This toolkit will support gender focal points and others to run training sessions in their respective countries to increase statistical literacy, which should lead to better evidence-based policymaking.
