PARIS21, in collaboration with Senegal’s Agence Nationale de Statistique et de la Démographie (ANSD), organised a joint workshop in Dakar, Senegal from 5 to 9 August 2019 covering PARIS21’s Advanced Data Planning Tool (ADAPT) and gender statistics project.

During the hands-on ADAPT training, representatives from ANSD were introduced to the ADAPT tool, and shown how to incorporate the tool into the NSDS life-cycle and leverage it to make data planning more efficient.

The gender statistics workshop brought together producers and users of gender statistics in Senegal discuss the integration of the gender dimension into the country’s third National Strategy for the Development of Statistics (NSDS). It also provided an opportunity to promote cooperation and establish a current snapshot of the state of gender statistics in the country from the perspective of producers and users, including civil society organizations and the academia. The workshop was attended by around 40 participants from ANSD, Ministère de la Femme, de la Famille, du Genre et de la Protection des Enfants, UN Women, other ministries, civil society organizations, and academia. 

The Inception Workshop was formally opened by Babakar NDir, Director General of ANSD, followed by statements from UN Women Country Coordinator Dienaba Wane Ndiaye, PARIS21 Regional Programme Coordinator Philippe Gafishi and MFFGPE Director Absa Wade Ngom. Several presentations were made during the workshop, including a presentation on the status of the UN Women's Making Every Woman and Girl Count programme presented by the Chief Statistician of UN Women Papa Seck.
