Learn how gender indicators measure changes in gender gaps and women’s empowerment over time. Gender indicators can improve planning, programming, and accountability, as well as raise awareness. However, what gets measured depends on who defines the indicators. Local participation, adaptation to context, qualitative and quantitative data, and attention to implementation gaps are important for developing robust indicators. 

Here you will find examples of indicators used at the international (e.g. UN Gender Development Index), regional (e.g. Africa Gender and Development Index), and country (e.g. Cambodia’s additional MDG targets) levels. You will also find guidance on how to formulate indicators for policies, programs, and organizations’ internal gender mainstreaming.
