This report gives interim findings from results of a survey of 109 policymakers in five countries (Indonesia, India, Kenya, Senegal and Colombia), and seeks to shed light on:
- How do policymakers perceive progress on gender equality in their countries?
- What most needs to change in order to improve gender equality?
- What data and evidence do they rely on to make their decisions?
- How confident are they in their understanding of the major challenges affecting girls and women in their countries?
These findings will contribute to debates about data-driven decision making on gender equality, and raise attention to the gaps in accessible, reliable and relevant data and evidence needed to reach the SDGs by 2030.
