Monitoring SDG6 on water and sanitation

Gender contextualisation of SDG 6 global indicators

The UN-Water Integrated Monitoring Initiative for SDG 6 is currently developing approaches for the ‘gender contextualisation’ of the SDG 6 global indicators to support gender-relevant evidence-based policy making in countries. The work on gender contextualisation began in June 2021 and will continue to the end of 2022, after which a set of tools and approaches will be included in country-level capacity building activities in 2022 and subsequent years.

More information can be found in our concept note ‘Promoting Gender-sensitive and Inclusive Analysis of Water and Sanitation Data‘.

To support this important work, a group of Gender Experts has been convened to provide expert input and feedback on the work and draft outputs of IMI-SDG6. The Gender Experts have significant practical experience on gender issues, either at project, national or global level, as well as additional expertise on the gender-and-water nexus, gender data/monitoring or gender and other SDGs linked to water.
