At the outset, the SGGST curriculum was showcased after which the participants shared their views concerning the repository of gender statistics training experts and certification of trainers. During the meeting, each member of the SGGST also described their plans for the use of SGGST curriculum. SESRIC informed the participants that gender statistics training has been included in SESRIC Statistical Capacity Building (StatCaB) Programme activities for 2020 and will be included in 2021 activities. The expert who will be the trainer of gender statistics related training programme will be encouraged to utilise the SGGST curriculum as one of the knowledge resources.

The SGGST, a subsidiary organ within the Network for the Coordination of Statistical Training in Asia and the Pacific, was established in 2018 to support NSOs in the region to acquire necessary statistical capacities to effectively produce and use gender statistics for tracking of progress on the Sustainable Development Goals. SESRIC has been a formal member of the SGGST since 15 November 2018.
