UN Women is collaborating with the Council of Governors to develop county specific gender data sheets for 10 counties, as part of building their capacity to promote gender equality and women empowerment. The activity, implemented in partnership with the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics covers Bomet, Kitui, Kirinyaga, Turkana, Kakamega, Baringo, Kilifi, Meru, Kisumu and Marsabit. This intervention is linked to UN Women’s Flagship Programme Initiative, Making Every Woman and Girl Count, which aims to effect a radical shift in the production, availability, accessibility and use of quality data and statistics on key aspects of gender equality and women’s empowerment. Robust indicators and quality data are of critical importance and determine whether policy efforts are marshalled and whether the goals and targets set out by governments are achieved or missed. Data collection for the gender data sheets has been completed and the results will be disseminated later in the year.
