Dr Jacqueline Paul, the Senior Gender Adviser with the World Food Programme (WFP), will join us at the Measure What Matters Global Conference in April to speak on the Composite measures and gender equality panel.
This session will explore the opportunities and challenges in developing composite indices to support action on gender equality. The session will particularly focus on drawing out the key decisions that contribute to rigorous and coherent indices.
Jacqueline has played a key role in the development of the WFP’s new ‘Gender Equality for Food Security’ (GE4FS) measure, a globally-applicable instrument designed to illuminate the interconnectedness of dis/empowerment and food in/security.
Assisting some 87 million people in around 83 countries each year, WFP is one of the world’s leading humanitarian organizations delivering food assistance in emergencies and working with communities to improve nutrition and build resilience. Jacqueline leads the integration of gender in WFP’s work, across humanitarian action and development programming.
