A Technical Meeting on Measuring Asset Ownership from a Gender Perspective will take place from 30 July – 2 August in Bangkok, Thailand

Organized by the Evidence and Data for Gender Equality (EDGE) project, DESA’s Statistics Division (UNSD) and UN Women, this meeting will bring together around 30 experts including survey statisticians and gender specialists from selected countries, partner agencies and regional commissions to discuss how to measure asset ownership at the individual level.
