On the anniversary of global declarations, action plans and agendas, as HLPF 2020 focuses on accelerating action and transformative pathways, this side event will explore the necessity of robust, disaggregatable, gender-sensitive and multidimensional data for realizing the visions and goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Beijing Declaration. Making visible the circumstances of women and men in their diversity is a foundation for more focused and effective action to achieve gender equality, realize human rights and fundamental freedoms for all, and secure a sustainable future for people and planet.
