Gender Equality System

The GEMS is the first of its kind in South Asia. Data and information on the GEMS can be accessed or updated in different ways by changing different parameters like date of coverage, disaggregation of results, and purpose of reporting by sector and/or agency. Currently, the GEMS will be accessed and used primarily by a network of Gender Focal Points (GFPs) operating at the national sector level as well as at the local government level to plan and report progress on gender-mainstreaming activities.
