This booklet represents the main outcome of the project "Toward more gender-responsive Millennium Development Goal (MDG) monitoring and reporting in the Arab region" that was implemented by the ESCWA in cooperation with United Nations agencies in the Arab region. The project aimed at forging a common understanding among stakeholders on ways to engender quantitative monitoring and reporting on the MDGs, particularly the identification of priority regional gender issues and the development of gender-sensitive measurements in Arab countries.

We hope this booklet, with its in depth analysis of current practices in gender monitoring and reporting in the Arab countries, the proposed framework and the ways forward, will serve as a useful information guide for statisticians, gender experts and other stakeholders with regard to mainstreaming gender statistics in MDGs in the Arab region.
