We work on the analysis of the institutional architecture established to implement and monitor progress in the fulfillment of global sustainable development agendas, as well as on the interactions that enable the participation of different actors in these processes.



“Since the pandemic started, the particularly serious consequences of COVID-19 on women have been exposed. It is not, of course, that the virus affects the body of men or women differently, but rather its ability to show us multiple ways in which our societies impose burdens and punishments on them simply because they are women, while discussing the hypocrisy that exists around gender equality”. 

 New blog  by the Governance area Coordinator of Cepei, Javier Surasky. 


“COVID-19 highlights the role of women in all dimensions of society, but also their high level of exposure. In the fight against the virus, women represent 67% of health professionals worldwide. Overall, however, there is an average gender pay gap of approximately 28% in the health workforce (WHO, 2019)”. 

Contribution by Margarita Vaca, Data Researcher at Cepei. 


“COVID-19 pandemic has become, in many ways, a hinge of our era. Statistics are not excluded from this reality. Modernization of data production has been progressively progressing, but the transformation of novel elements was decisively accelerated with the pandemic. In the times to come, this trend is likely to consolidate. The international community must work for these improvements to impact countries in a homogeneous way, following the premise of leaving no one behind”.

By Hernán Muñoz, Cepei´s Data Ecosystem Advisor.
