When adopting the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, member states set as a fundamental principle "Leave no one behind" and thus demanded more disaggregation of data in order to ensure the monitoring and evaluation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Several indicators produced are not yet disaggregated according to the main disaggregation, including the indicators for target 2.3, for which there are challenges for the compilation of disaggregated data.
Annual agricultural survey data from Burkina Faso and Mali were used in a pilot study to produce the indicators for SDG 2.3.1: Volume of production per unit of work and SDG 2.3.2: Average income of small-scale food producers. This paper focuses on the possible disaggregation of the indicators compiled from the annual survey data of these two countries and the limitations. The disaggregation retained at the international level for the SDG 2.3.1 and 2.3.2 indicators are gender, indigenous status and type of enterprise.
Despite limitations in the data needed to calculate the indicators for SDG 2.3.1 and SDG 2.3.2, the data were disaggregated according to the gender of the head of household in both countries and according to the area of residence in Mali. Indigenous status was not collected during the surveys.
The agricultural survey conducted in these two countries is a stratified probability sample survey with two levels of sampling and uses data from the general population census as its sampling frame. The survey is representative at the level of region in each country and place of residence in Mali.
In Burkina Faso, less than 10% of household heads are women in 2020 and 2021 and 11% in 2019. In Mali, on the other hand, less than 3% of heads of agricultural households are women.
The paper will present the results obtained from the disaggregation of the SDG 2.3.1 and SDG 2.3.2 indicators in Mali and Burkina Faso.
