Advanced Training on Big Data for Gender-Responsive SDG Monitoring
In partnership with UN Women Asia and the Pacific Regional Office, DPA conducted a two-day in-person advanced training for the Gender Statistics Unit at UN Women. The primary objective was to empower participants with the skills to handle non-traditional data sources and showcase their real-world utility in the context of gender-sensitive monitoring of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This comprehensive training program integrated a variety of interactive activities designed to foster theoretical, technical, and practical learning across the four key dimensions of Big Data. These included conceptual presentations, ethical discussions, data-focused technical tutorials, interactive forums, and hands-on laboratory sessions.
