Tools for reporting on MDG data

MDGInfoUN DESA’s Statistics Division together with the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (UN ESCWA) is organizing a Training Workshop on SDMX tools for MDG Data Reporting on 2-5 December in Casablanca, Morocco.

Statistical Data and Metadata eXchange (SDMX) is the preferred standard for allowing National Statistical Offices (NSOs) to automate and standardize exchange of data and metadata associated with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

The workshop will provide participants with an introduction to SDMX and focus on the process of mapping and exchanging indicators with SDMX through the features added to DevInfo 7.
