Beyond Slogans – Good Practice to Count Us All In
Gender, age and disability inclusive policies based on good disaggregated data are essential to poverty eradication for those older and for people with disabilities. Encouraging developments include: the multiple Indicator Survey on Aging, a new City Group” on age data, disability databases, and citizen generated data.
Recognizing and promoting the contributions, rights and participation of older persons, persons with disabilities and women of all ages is necessary to ensure that Leave No One Behind is not a slogan, but a practical way of doing development.
This event will be an opportunity to explore the steps and advocacy necessary to ensuring that accurate data, fully disaggregated by gender, disability and age, will become the standard in data collection efforts for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
