Workshop for the UNSD-DFID project on “Improving the collation, availability and dissemination of national development indicators, including MDGs” will take place in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, on 21-25 April.
The workshop “CountryData: Building better dissemination systems for national development indicators,” organized by UN DESA’s Statistics Division, is the fourth in a series of international workshops planned by the Statistics Division – Department for International Development (DFID) Project on “Improving the collation, availability and dissemination of national development indicators, including MDGs”.
The series of workshops has served to build capacity around implementing the Statistical Data and Metadata eXchange (SDMX) dissemination model promoted by the project. The fourth workshop will, in particular, look at complex issues and advanced topics in SDMX mapping and exchange. It will also focus on metadata and its use in discrepancy analysis, with a long term view to reducing discrepancies between national and international development data. The training will be led by the Statistics Division in UN DESA and will bring together statistical and IT project focal points from the 11 countries participating in the project.
