Strengthening the Climate Change Data Ecosystem (CCDE): Senegal and the region

Available and timely climate change data is crucial to help governments and societies adapt to new climate realities and mitigate the effects of climate change. Countries in Africa rank among the most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Floods, storms, and droughts have been more frequent in the region, jumping from 85 recorded events in the 1970s to over 540 between 2010 and 2019. This regional workshop seeks to disseminate the results of the collaborations between Agence nationale de la statistique et de la démographie du Sénégal (ANSD), the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development, and PARIS21 and other development partners on climate change data and explore venues for strategic scaling-up support in Senegal and the region.

Unpacking gender data use in Asia and the Pacific

The potential of gender data to inform, measure, and promote gender equality is gaining traction across the globe.

In this webinar, the Partnership for Statistics for Development in the 21st Century (PARIS21) brings together different actors working on gender data use in Asia and the Pacific to facilitate a regional knowledge exchange and promote the sharing of regional good practices in using gender data.

Wébinaire: L'utilisation des outils géographiques dans la statistique publique

La Stratégie pour l’harmonisation des statistiques en Afrique 2017-2026 (SHaSA 2) met l'accent sur la nécessité de disposer de statistiques harmonisées, de qualité, en temps opportun et désagrégées. Pour ce faire, des outils géographiques tels que les images satellites ou encore les systèmes d’information géographique (SIG) sont utilisés afin et qui nécessitent des compétences géographiques particulières. Utilisés depuis des décennies en Afrique dans certains projets de développement, leur utilisation dans la statistique publique est relativement récente et est associée aux besoins de données locales de plus en plus précises et riches, notamment pour affiner la connaissance des disparités sociales et territoriales.

Ce 12ème webinaire sera l’occasion de présenter et de discuter des outils géographiques développés et utilisés en Afrique et en Europe, des innovations récentes, mais aussi des contraintes et des besoins que ces outils engendrent.
