To enhance the capacity of entities which belong to the National Statistics Office, the Ministries of Agriculture and/or the Ministries of Food through provision of training to statistical staff, in order to increase their knowledge and to develop their skills to produce data, apply appropriate statistical methods to produce Post-Harvest Loss (PHL) statistics and indicators including the Global Food Loss Index (GFLI), interpret and utilise these for monitoring the progress in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The course is aimed at strengthening the technical capacity of entities of national statistical systems to produce a set of education-related statistics, including indicators, to formulate, implement and evaluate esucation policy and track progress towards the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4).
Development of evidence-based sustainable development strategies and policies relies on available and reliable statistics. Mainstreaming the measurement of environment concerns as part of the regular data collection programs of national statistical offices would give policy makers the means with which to make balanced policy choices for sustainable development. Such measurements will also assist with monitoring national and international sustainable development initiatives, including the sustainable development goals, the SAMOA Pathway for Small Island Developing States and the Pacific SDG Roadmap.
The Network facilitates information sharing and promotes coordination among national statistical training institutions, regional and international statistical training providers, and donor agencies that provide funding for statistical trainings in the region. At its organizational meeting, the Network members recognized that better coordination would provide an environment within which training recipients and training providers can use a common language and a set of tools to describe priority needs and, identify and fill training gaps in the region.
Effective Collaboration for Increasing Availability, Access and Use of Quality Gender Statistics
This course is jointly organised by the Institute and the Japan International Cooperation Agency of the Government of Japan. It is designed to strengthen the capacity of entities belonging to national statistical systems, by providing statistical staff with training that aims at increasing their knowledge and improving their skills to produce data, to apply statistical methods in order to produce official statistics as well as indicators and to interpret and to use these for monitoring progress in achieving the SDGs.
