For Advocacy And Programming To Improve Gender Data Use And Resourcing

Overview
Data2X, an alliance housed at the U.N. Foundation, seeks to improve the quality, availability, and use of gender data in order to make a practical difference in the lives of women and girls worldwide. Data2X works with partners to improve the production and use of gender data through convening, research, advocacy, and communications. As an anchor grantee in the data substrategy of our women’s economic empowerment work, Data2X has a track record of raising awareness about the importance of gender data, identifying gender data gaps, and building partnerships to develop new methods. During this grant period, Data2X aims to enable the availability, usability, demand for, funding of, and use of gender data by governments, multilaterals, and private sector actors. Its goals include laying the groundwork for larger-scale change in key gender data production areas such as women’s economic participation, financial inclusion, and big data; deepening the field’s understanding of the current state of gender data and actions that need to be taken to drive data use; mobilizing new actors or channels for funding; and improving its own capacity to tell the gender data story and mobilize new investments in gender data.

Grants to this Grantee
for the U.S. Climate Alliance  
The U.N. Foundation is the fiscal sponsor for the U.S. Climate Alliance, a bipartisan group of 24 U.S. states, led by their governors, committed to advancing leading-edge climate policies, including driving collaborative, multistate action that helps stimulate economic growth across multiple industries. Alliance states represent more than 60% of U.S. GDP, 55% of the U.S. population, and 40% of U.S. emissions. Recent analysis shows that the U.S. can reach its goal of reducing emissions by 50% by 2030 only through joint federal, state, and business action. (Substrategy: U.S. National Policy)
for improved data related to women’s economic empowerment  
With this project grant, the United Nations Foundation (UNF) will continue its work to analyze and compile existing data and identify data gaps related to key areas of women’s empowerment, as a core technical contribution to the Data 2X initiative announced by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2012. Leading a group of technical experts, UNF will identify data gaps that hinder gender-inclusive policy development. A near-term policy focus will be on establishing data requirements for the post-2015 international goal framework. With ongoing input from the advisory group, UNF will develop a plan of action that defines options for collecting and analyzing new and existing data for policy formulation and will identify opportunities for private-public sector engagement and collaboration.
