Mission & Objective
The mission of the Global Centre of Excellence on Gender Statistics (CEGS) is to facilitate technical assistance to improve the generation, analysis and use of gender statistics to ultimately assist National Statistics Systems to mainstream gender into the production, processing, analysis, dissemination, and use of statistical information as a reference for decision making, accountability, and to monitor international agreements and goals as relates to gender equality and women’s rights. National Statistics Systems refer to the sum of all entities in a country that produce data and use statistics to inform the policy-making process.
The CEGS plays a key role in promoting collaboration and access to technical expertise through the creation of multidisciplinary networks, knowledge generation, diffusion and sharing and innovation in new and emerging areas of gender statistics.
