Gender Sector Statistics Plan
The Gender Sector Statistics Plan (GSSP), which is part of the Kenya Strategy for the Development of Statistics (KSDS), is aimed at strengthening Kenya’s statistical capacity in gender statistics. It offers strategic direction for the sector for the period 2019/20–2022/23. Gender statistics are central in understanding the dynamics of, and for promoting, gender equality because they provide relevant information, including indicators and benchmarks for measuring progress and analysing underlying factors.
The strategies and actions outlined in this plan are geared towards addressing the data gaps between what is currently produced or is available and the data that is required to inform policy, advocacy, accountability and other priority development issues – particularly those linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Third Medium-Term Plan (MTP III)1, the ‘Big Four Agenda’ and the Sessional Paper No. 2 of 2019 on National Policy on Gender and Development (NPGAD). In this regard, this Plan aims to facilitate evidence-based policy formulation, planning, budgeting, monitoring and evaluation.
