World Bank

For A Project On Gender Data

This project is part of a new partnership between the World Bank, Data2X, the International Labor Organization, and the Food and Agricultural Organization. The partnership supports the implementation of the new international statistical standards for measuring men’s and women’s employment and work, which were adopted by the 19th International Conference of Labor Statisticians. In particular, the project seeks to develop ways to adapt household surveys to measure unpaid work, and then to apply those new methods in at least two countries. Improving measurement of unpaid work will advance a comprehensive understanding of women's economic contributions, particularly where subsistence agriculture is prevalent.

for engagement of civil society organizations and the Women, Business and the Law data and analyses  
Women, Business and the Law (WBL) is a program of the World Bank that systematically documents and measures legal and regulatory barriers to women’s economic empowerment around the world. The program will build upon the previous grants by strengthening the capacity of civil society organizations in sub-Saharan Africa to understand and use information from WBL to advocate for gender equality reforms. It will also deepen engagement at the local level and on context-relevant specific issues, and support peer-to-peer knowledge exchange events among policymakers and civil society organizations.
