The Evidence for Gender and Education Resource (EGER) provides easily accessible data and evidence to address inequalities and injustices in global education. Launched in 2020 with evidence at the center, EGER serves as a knowledge partner in the gender and education ecosystem, informing programs and policies and shaping the global agenda. EGER seeks to create a world with better education for all.
EGER hosts more than 500 profiles of organizations that implement programs, conduct research, advocate, network, and fund efforts in the gender and education space in more than 100 countries. It contains details on more than 700—and counting—current projects. Curated evidence from recent meta-analyses and systematic reviews helps identify what interventions work for which outcomes, and highlights where research gaps remain. EGER also shows country-level indicators for key gender and education outcomes, including literacy, completion rates, school-related gender-based violence, and more.
The EGER team is expanding their mapping to include country-level organizations and their programs, government initiatives, and country-level policies. To share or update your work on EGER, please visit your account page or create an account.
The EGER team will also continue mapping current global gender and education efforts alongside updates of current needs data and evidence of what works. Check out the latest synthesis—the Girls Education Roadmap—and stay tuned for more data visualizations and syntheses. Join the EGER mailing list to be notified of updates.
EGER is led by the Population Council’s GIRL Center in partnership with Echidna Giving.
