PARIS21 organised the Informing a Data Revolution (IDR) Action Lab for the East African Countries region in Nakuru, Kenya 7-8 September 2015. This was the first of a series of regional events and was organised back to back with the Accelerated Data Program (ADP) Regional Review. The Action Lab raised awareness of mainstream international modernisation standards, IDR project and innovation work and resulted in the compilation of list of country bottlenecks for statistical processing. A preliminary list of actions was drafted to improve statistical processing and to increase capacity to modernise (Data Portal rationalisation, training needs, regional support, use of modernisation standards, other technical capacity needs).
