This regional meeting was set to discuss the progress of the activity on the Arabic Glossaries and SDG Metadata implemented under the umbrella of DA11 project on Supporting ESCWA Member States in the Adoption and Implementation of Arabic Standards. The project aims to address the unavailability of unified standards for scientific Arabic terms which has left a gap with significant hurdles in the collection, comparability, and usefulness of data across the full spectrum of development issues especially those produced from administrative records. The meeting aimed to provide an overview of progress made on the Arabic glossaries and the SDG metadata, to discuss the challenges and opportunities in applying standards at the national level and make recommendations for adopting and using them to better plan and implement the second phase of this project.
