Gender Summit : Advancing best practice for incorporation of gender analysis in health research: SAGER 

August 20, 2020 |Organiser: Gender Summit

The primary goal of GS19 was to bring together key player organisations that are actively advancing knowledge and practice for effective implementation of SDG targets, and identify topics where gender is not given the priority it should. Example organisations that are being targeted include: research performing members of the UN Sustainable Solutions Network (SDSN); members of the International Science Council (ISC); multilateral institutions such as OECD and UNESCO; funders of research for development such as the International Development Research Centre in Canada; and capacity building programmes such as the collaborative GREAT (Gender-responsive Researchers Equipped for Agricultural Transformation) project involving Cornell (USA) and Makerere (Uganda) universities. 
The target participants are acknowledged technical and gender experts and practitioners from across the different global regional familiar with SDG-related themes as well as with gender knowledge and experience relevant to different SDG targets. 
Developing and Applying Methods of Sex/Gender Analysis in Research for SDGs: This session presents latest advances in research methods to understand when, why and how biological (sex) and socio-cultural (gender) characteristics of studied populations, and in their ecological contexts, impact on research results and differentiate quality of research outcomes for women/females and men/males.
