UNECE leads the 5-yearly regional review of progress in the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action, helping countries and other stakeholders to assess trends and progress in achieving gender equality in the region, identify current challenges, highlight good practices and commit to concrete actions in a range of key areas.
UNECE conducts methodological work to ensure appropriate measurement of gender issues in official statistics. Internationally agreed guidance on valuing unpaid household service work is just one example. UNECE builds related capacities in national statistical systems, and facilitates the exchange of knowledge and experience between countries.
The UNECE Gender Statistics Database highlights key issues and trends in gender equality in the region, helping to inform targeted action.
