UN Women was established by GA resolution 64/289 of 2 July 2010 on system-wide coherence, with a mandate to assist Member States and the UN system to progress more effectively and efficiently towards the goal of achieving gender equality and the empowerment of women. Since 2001 UN Women (previously as UNIFEM) in Kyrgyzstan has implemented catalytic initiatives on promoting women’s economic, political and social rights. In 2012, a full UN Women Country Office (CO) was established.
Starting in July 2018, the Kyrgyz Republic has joined the MEWGC programme, thus reiterating the country’s strong commitment to improve the production, accessibility and use of gender statistics for the benefit of a wide range of users. MEWGC programme has been supported the National Statistical Committee to conduct the Gender Assessment of the National Statistical System and the Government in the preparation of the first Voluntary National Review. In addition, UN Women is providing technical support to the National Statistics Committee to improve dissemination and communication skills on gender statistics through training and coaching sessions, revision of existing practices and products to disseminate and communicate data in a more user friendly format that meet needs of different users.
Utilizing gender data to inform policymaking, enhance accountability, advocate for change and track progress towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is critical to keeping the promise of leaving no one behind. Gender data, even when available, is often underutilized and misinterpreted due to factors such as: a disconnect between the priorities of data users and producers, limited open data accessibility, limited statistical literacy on the part of data users such as policymakers and the media; and difficulty on the part of data producers to formulate data messages in accessible ways for consumers.
The 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent a fundamental shift in thinking in international development, recognizing the interconnectedness of prosperous business, a thriving society and a healthy environment. The Agenda names all three sectors as key development actors and requires an unprecedented level of cooperation and collaboration among civil society, business, government, NGOs, foundations, academia and others for its achievement.
Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) is a set of seven principles for businesses offering guidance on how to strengthen gender equality in the workplace, in the market place, and the community. The WEPs serves as the umbrella framework for multi-stakeholder networks to work together to foster implementation and awareness of the internationally agreed standards for business practices that empower women. The Principles are also the primary vehicle for corporate delivery on gender equality and women’s empowerment dimensions of the 2030 agenda and the SDGs.
Under the supervision of the Senior Programme officer and in consultation with other program teams, the SDGs Data and Partnership Coordinator is responsible for implementing key elements on SDGs data, in particular in relation to leading the monitoring of gender-related SDGs indicators, provide support to and advise UN Women colleagues on matters related to SDGs monitoring, data and statistics. In addition, the SDGs Data and Partnership Coordinator will responsible for building of high impact partnership with Kyrgyz government and private sector to maximize SDG’s impact as well as promote Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs).
