VNRs are most meaningful when they are evidence-based, produce tangible lessons and solutions, and when they are followed by concrete action and collaboration that drives SDG implementation. Access to high quality, up-to-date, and disaggregated data is vital for the VNR. This calls for timely engagement with the National Statistical Office (NSO) and other actors in the National Statistical System (NSS) in the VNR process.
National data and statistical systems play a key role in ensuring that VNRs are underpinned by evidence. This poses the need for prioritization of the use of statistics in tracking SDGs progress.
The objective of the Workshop is to develop Kenya’s Third VNR roadmap, data collection template and zero draft through consultations with experts, group discussions and plenary sessions. This workshop will ensure a participatory process to the development of the 3rd VNR.
