PARIS21 held workshops from 7 to 9 October 2019 in Cairo, Egypt with the aim to reinforce data planning, introduce the gender statistics assessment framework developed in partnership with UN Women and to highlight the importance of integrating gender into the national strategy for the development of statistics (NSDS).

In order to strengthen the implementation of the objectives of the National Strategy for the Empowerment of Women and to monitor progress in women's empowerment in Egypt, PARIS21 and UN Women support the efforts of the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS) to produce gender statistics and integrate gender into the NSDS.

Workshops held included a full-day, hands-on training workshop on the usage of PARIS21's Advance Data Planning Tool (ADAPT) which was attended by 25 participants from CAPMAS. This training was especially relevant as one of the outcomes of PARIS21's meetings in Egypt was a renewed focus on the 54 gender-specific Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicators, and ADAPT will be used to help address these challenges.

Another workshop introduced the newly launched gender statistics assessment framework to nearly 70 representatives from CAPMAS and line ministries across Egypt, making the connection between the importance of gender statistics, the assessment framework and ADAPT.
