On 3 October 2017, PARIS21 and UNICEF co-organised a side-event on the side-lines of the 6th SDMX Global Conference at UNECA in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Titled, “Identifying key success factors for capacity development in data and statistics – Visioning the future of disseminating statistics in SDMX environment for SDGs monitoring”, the panel discussion sought perspectives from experts on innovative approaches to capacity development, especially looking at issues around people, organizations/institutions and the enabling environment in the statistical dissemination space.

Panellists included Eric Anvar, Head of Digital Practices and Solutions, OECD (representing SIS-CC); Kamel Abdellaoui, Director, INS Tunisia; Koua Louis Kouakou, Senior Statistician, AfDB; Matthias Reister, Chief, Development Data Dissemination Section UNSD; Panhara Oukchay, Deputy Director General, NIS Cambodia; and Rose Michael, Database Administrator, NBS Tanzania.

Discussions were informed by lessons learned from development partners through the deployment of data dissemination platforms in developing countries as well as countries’ own efforts to embark on modernising dissemination practices. Overall, deliberations identified examples of what practices have worked and have not worked, by focusing on the experience of representatives of national statistical offices and other experts in the field of statistics; and proposed aspects requiring crucial attention, including capacity and sustainability.
