ESCWA and UNIDO organized a webinar on selected SDG indicators that are less produced/disseminated in the Arab region to create a common understanding among data producers on how to collect, measure and disseminate SDG indicators to increase data availability and enhance national data flow to national policy makers, regional users including the custodian agency.
The main objectives of the regional training are:
- Enhancing understanding of metadata and nature of data in the UNSD SDG database.
- Improving statistical capacities to invigorate production and use of comparable SDG indicators.
- Strengthening inter-institutional coordination to invigorate production of SDG indicators and data flow.
- Sharing and discussing country challenges in measuring SDG indicators
