Improve Data and Accountability
for Girls and Women

Applying a gender lens to the Sustainable Development Goals requires accurate, disaggregated data to fuel evidence-based advocacy, guide interventions, and hold governments accountable to their commitments.

As world leaders and advocates gather at the UN General Assembly in New York, the Deliver for Good Campaign is putting data and solutions for ensuring accountability front and center.

From exciting new research released at the Women Deliver 2019 Conference to inspiring examples of data-fueled advocacy, Deliver for Good partners are using evidence to deliver for girls and women and power progress for all.
