Gender-Sensitive Statistics: HCP, UN Women Committed to Strengthening Cooperation

On this occasion, the two parties welcomed the “strategic” partnership between the HCP and UN Women, highlighting joint actions to strengthen the integration of the gender approach into the development and use of national statistics.

Lahlimi praised the joint efforts made to carry out various statistical work and its use in the form of studies, which has given a “very clear” vision of the situation of women in Moroccan society.

The High Commissioner for Planning highlighted the role of gender-sensitive statistics in the assessment of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly in terms of gender equality and empowerment of women.

For her part, the UN Women official said the purpose of the partnership established between the two parties is to “strengthen gender mainstreaming in the national statistics base.”

“We have conducted together several surveys on the situation of women,” she recalled, citing the national survey on violence against women, or the gender analysis of the impact of Covid on households.

Other work is underway, such as gender social reports and household satellite accounts, Rhiwi added.

The objective is to strengthen gender-sensitive national statistics base and ensure access for all to statistics on the situation of women in Morocco.
