From 24 to 27 November 2020, PARIS21 is partnering with the United Nations Statistical Institute for Asia and the Pacific (UNSIAP) for a virtual training course on strategic planning for data and statistical development.

The course, attended by senior managers of national statistical offices and national planning agencies in the Asia-Pacific region, will give an introduction to a number of innovative tools and methods designed to help statistical systems develop adequate capacities to cope with new and rising data demands.

The toolbox includes

  • National Strategies for the Development of Statistics (NSDS), a long-term action plan for the production and dissemination of national statistics,

  • Capacity Development 4.0, a new approach to capacity development, to assess and strategically develop the capacity of statistical systems, including their legal framework, funding infrastructure, coordination, communications and advocacy.

  • Advanced Data Planning Tool (ADAPT), a web-based planning tool to adapt data production to the data needs for policy making, planning and monitoring.

In addition, the four-day training will feature special topics on gender statistics as well as fragility and resilience in crisis context. To enrich cross-country learning, participants will share country practices and experiences in national development and strategic planning.
