Putting children at the forefront of National Statistical Systems
Tuesday 28 February, 08:15-09:15 EST, Danny Kaye Visitor Centre, UNICEF House - Open event
Children are often the most affected by the impacts of climate change, conflict and poverty.
Policies and programmes that ensure that children survive, thrive and develop to their full potential, while leaving no one behind, are paramount for sustainable development.
Governments need high quality, timely data and statistics on the situation of children and adolescents and their wellbeing to plan, implement, monitor and evaluate these programmes and policies. Yet many countries lack the data systems to make informed choices.
Join UNICEF and PARIS21 for an engaging breakfast discussion to explore how to mainstream children's data in the statistics value chain.
Drawing on country experiences, it will unpack current challenges in the production and use of data and statistics on children and adolescents and discuss opportunities for strategic partnerships and scalable solutions for strengthening national statistical systems.
If you’re planning on attending the UN Statistical Commission, or if you’re in the New York area, please join us on the 28th of February at the Danny Kaye Visitor Centre (UNICEF House | 3 United Nations Plaza) for this event.
No registration is required and we will share a detailed agenda soon.
