First Sub-regional Workshop on Data and Statistics for Sustainable Development Goals ( SDGs)

[Greater Noida, India, 5 to -9 September 2016]


This workshop is designed to facilitate discussions and build capacity to translate into concrete terms the proposed regional vision and action areas into sub-regional and national
level actions. Specifically, the workshop will:

• Provide participants with a clear understanding of the emerging SDG indicator architecture and links and implications to existing indicator-based monitoring frameworks1 and building national statistical capacity to provide relevant data to
monitor development progress;
• Facilitate consideration and formulation of national and sub-regional implementation strategies and actions of the proposed regional framework for action; and
• Support the development of appropriate indicator frameworks for SDGs implementation by equipping participants with knowledge, skills and tools needed
for a systematic assessment and identification of data shortfalls due to inadequate disaggregation, reporting, financing and methodology.
