Arab Forum on Building Statistical Capacity for a Data Revolution 

10-11 October 2016

The St. Regis Hotel, Doha, Qatar


Discussions on the data revolution are taking place in all regions of the world, but turning these discussions into reality remains a challenge. In order for the 2030 Agenda and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to have meaningful impact, there is a need for specific recommendations and concrete objectives on how to utilise the data revolution, backed by long-term political and financial support.

With the aim of gaining political support for such a roadmap, PARIS21, MDPS and GCC-STAT will hold a Regional Forum on Building Statistical Capacity for a Data Revolution, bringing together the Arab region community to agree on concrete steps to build statistical capacity in countries to respond to national, regional, and international data needs within the 2030 Agenda.
