The capacity building workshop was organized by UNESCAP in collaboration with the Statistical Committee of the Republic of Armenia. It was a follow-up to the regional Inception Workshop of the Gender Policy-Data Integration Initiative (GPDI), held in Bangkok in April 2018. The GPDI’s objective is to strengthen data and statistics in the ESCAP region for evidence-based policies and programmes on gender equality and women’s empowerment.

The workshop aimed to:

  1. enhance understanding of data and information needs, including disaggregation requirements, through content analysis of selected policy documents on women’s economic empowerment (WEE);
  2. develop a framework to produce a comprehensive national indicator set on WEE based on existing national, regional and global indicator frameworks;
  3. promote the use of statistical data to determine future policy priorities and outcomes; and
  4. lay foundations for structured dialogue between data producers and users to promote evidence-based policies on gender equality and women’s empowerment in Armenia.

Along with the Statistical Committee, key line ministries involved in women’s empowerment issues and national agencies participated to the workshop.
