Gender equality is an enabler for achieving sustainable development in Timor-Leste. Recognized in the National Strategic Development Plan and overseen by the national women’s machinery – the Secretary of State for Equality and Inclusion (SEI) – achieving gender equality is the responsibility of all government agencies and development partners. The population and housing census is one of several national data sets that contributes to the evidence base used to guide and monitor progress toward gender equality and social inclusion.
