From 6 to 8 November, PARIS21 is partnering with the United Nations Statistical Institute for Asia and the Pacific (SIAP) and the Asian Development Bank on a training course in Chiba, Japan to develop capacity in new data visualization techniques in the region.

The workshop, attended by 25 representatives from around the region, is designed to train national statistical office (NSO) statisticians on static and dynamic data visualization principles and practices, on what tools are available and how to use them, and how to create their own data visualizations. Additionally, the training will foster understanding of the organisational dimensions associated with data visualization and will explore practical applications and implementation of the training in participants' work.

PARIS21's Data Visualization Toolkit serves as the basis of the three-day training. The Toolkit was developed to better prepare NSOs to communicate data-heavy findings to wide audiences, promoting improved dissemination and increased usage of official statistics through effective data storytelling and data visualization. In addition to being available via face-to-face delivery, the Toolkit will also be available on the upcoming PARIS21 Academy e-learning platform.
