The ASEAN Gender Outlook is the first regional flagship publication jointly produced by ASEAN Committee on Women (ACW), the ASEAN Secretariat and UN Women. It is dedicated to track progress towards gender equality and SDGs in the ASEAN region. It calls for increased investment in gender data and evidence, which is important to inform policy decision-making and ensure that our responses are effective and inclusive with specific target to women and girls of most vulnerable and marginalised groups.

The publication brings into focus the paucity of gender data and calls for greater investment and prioritization of data for tracking progress towards gender equality and achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in ASEAN in line with the ASEAN Complementarities Initiative between the ASEAN Community Vision 2025 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
