To start the training activities of the teams that will participate in the next coordinated audit on the feminization of poverty, under the approach of the 2030 Agenda, a webinar was carried out with the participation of auditors of the auditing institutions of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay and Bogotá.

The future work of control, led by the National Auditor General of Argentina, is carried out in the context of EFSUR and will seek to evaluate how the structures, policies, plans and programs that governments have defined to end poverty, with a gender approach, work and interact.

The webinar, organized by the Comptroller General of the Republic of Chile, had the participation of the Coordinator of UN Women Chile, María Inés Salamanca; the Analyst of the Gender Studies and Statistics Unit of the National Statistics Institute of Chile, Mabel Araya; the Sectorialist of the Social Observatory Division from the Ministry of Social Development of Chile, Alejandro González; and the Lawyer of the Unit of Cooperation and International Relations of the CGR-Chile, Daniela Santana. The topics discussed revolved around the concepts common to gender and poverty, the United Nations perspective on the subject, and the work being done in Chile to incorporate gender variables into the statistical system and income distribution indicators, access to social services and poverty.

Webinars are a capacity-building tool that make it possible to reduce the training costs of the coordinated activities with a high impact since it makes it easier for teams from different countries to participate and interact with exhibitors via the web, thus preventing them from traveling from one country to another.
