A PARIS21 workshop for the countries of East Africa and the Great Horn was held in Kampala from 23 July to 26 July 2001. Senior policy-makers and statisticians from 7 countries attended. The purpose of this workshop was to strengthen links between those who produce statistics and those who use data and information in developing, setting and monitoring key policy areas. The meeting explored good practice from the region and beyond in using data in policy contexts and to promote evidence-based policy making. There were opportunities for the participants to review the current regional and international development agenda and for country teams to discuss and develop these ideas in the context of their own country situations.

Shared experiences particularly valued by the participants were:

  • POVERTY MAPPING
  • DISSEMINATION STRATEGIES
  • POVERTY MONITORING MASTER PLANS
  • PARTICIPATORY APPROACHES
  • MANAGEMENT INFORMATION DATA (World Health Chart)

Each country team developed an outline plan or strategy to be taken forward for implementation after the meeting.
