Civil society consultation on the UNDP-led LGBTI Inclusion Index



on the UNDP-led LGBTI Inclusion Index
hosted by ILGA, OutRight and RFSL


ILGA, OutRight and RFSL, three LGBTI organizations working within UN led processes, were asked by the UNDP and the World Bank to facilitate communications with LGBTI civil society regarding the UNDP-led LGBTI Inclusion Index (Index).
On 19 September 2017, we held an introductory Webinar which provided background on the Index and outlined opportunities to get involved in the consultation process to develop and refine indicators in five dimensions of LGBTI life: health, education, political & civic participation, economic well-being, and personal security & violence.

A recording of the webinar is available here:

We are now inviting you to sign up to one or more 90-minute Webinar discussions that will be held between 2-6 October.

During these webinars on health, education, political & civic participation, economic well-being, and personal security & violence the opportunity will be provided to review and comment on a set of proposed draft indicators (which will be sent to those who sign up prior to the Webinar dates).

Deadline for sign up
is Friday 29 September 2017!

Each Webinar will be conducted in English, with simultaneous translation in French and Spanish (online, with no software or downloads required). Each Webinar will have interactive time to discuss and refine the proposed indicators.

We would welcome your input. If you would like to book your place, please send your email address to [email protected], and we will be back in contact with you.

Deadline for sign up is
Friday 29 September

During the last week of September we will send you the sets of proposed indicators for each dimension, rationale for their inclusion, as well as login details, and simultaneous translation to French and Spanish details.

The criteria for review of the indicators will also be circulated at this time and the discussion during the Webinars will take us through these considerations.

We are aware that the timeline for this consultation is quite short, and that time zones and people’s schedules may preclude participation in the Webinars. As such, it is possible for those who are unable to join the webinars to write focused comments on the proposed indicators.

We will supply a template for written submission, on request. Please write to [email protected] if you require this and please make your submission by Monday 9 October. ILGA, Outright and RFSL will include such content in the outcome document provides to UNDP and World Bank following this consultation process.

We welcome your participation in any or all of these 5 dimension webinars.
