For a week in Bamako, Mali, AFRISTAT and PARIS21 organised a workshop for trainers in Statistics and Public Relations. The workshop gathered together over twenty participants, journalists and statisticians from Benin, Burundi, Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Mali and Senegal, alongside AFRISTAT, STATEC and PARIS21 experts.
During the week, journalists and statisticians learned about each other’s work, as producers and users of statistics, in order to facilitate workshops in their countries of origin. Some proposed realistic and precise activities that they could implement at national level. These workshops will help National Statistical Offices to build and maintain good relations with the media.
