Citizen Generated Data Toolkit
Citizens need reliable data to demand prioritization of the community concerns, and support advocacy efforts, as well as strengthen accountability processes in response to GEWE among others. Anecdotal information from censuses, surveys and administrative data sources shows that Uganda has invaluable data concerning the status of GEWE at the national level. There is however an exceptional demand for data and statistical information to explain the ‘why and how’ of the systemic barriers that women and girls experience. This Toolkit provides basic guidelines for producers of non-traditional source data such as civil society organizations and private sector institutions implementing gender equlity and women's empowerment (GEWE)-related programmes. Uganda developed these guidelines as a strategic step towards increasing gender data production and its use in reaching women and girls.
