Sex and Age Disaggregated Data in Humanitarian Action
The Conference was one of the best scientific gatherings I have attended. The approach to the topics were scientific but realistic, addressing challenges that development workers face on the field in clear and simple terms. What was most exciting was the opportunity to interact with like-minded people from both Canada and other LMICs, who are passionate about helping others. 2017 delegate

For this project, CSIH led a Desk Review of workplans, policies, data collection and management tools developed and supported by the Global Clusters, in order to identify those mandated to collect sex and age disaggregated data as well as data on humanitarian assistance. The review looked at the key components of data quality (accuracy, comprehensiveness, reportability, timeliness etc.) documenting any gaps or “good practices” related to sex and age disaggregated data collection, analysis and use for decision making. Key informant interviews and several consultative meetings involving experts in the field of data collection, cluster leads working with establishing monitoring systems, as well as senior decision makers in humanitarian agencies were conducted in order to determine barriers to collecting and reporting data by sex and age.
