DevStat is pleased to inform of its contribution to the organisation a High-Level Seminar on “Policy-data nexus, experience sharing between EU countries and Asia” will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, 14th and 15th October. This Seminar is organized for Eurostat in close cooperation with ESCAP (Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific).
The High-Level Seminar will provide a platform for discussions on national and international practices for engaging a dialogue between policy-makers and statisticians, especially in relation to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals. Social, economic and environmental policies should be based on scientific methods to gather evidence on target populations, evaluate alternative scenarios and measuring their impact. The seminar is expected to deliver suggestions, ideas and reflections to the ESCAP Committee on Statistics – the highest coordinating body of statistics in Asia and the Pacific- that will take place the same week.
DevStat has mobilized top-level European statistical experts for conducting lectures and discussion sessions.
During the next three years, DevStat in cooperation with our partner T&T Executive for the logistics, will support Eurostat in organizing similar conferences in Africa, Latin America and Europe.
DevStat provides since 2004 advisory services to international organisations and national governments for the improvement of public policies based on statistical evidence, improving the functioning of their National Statistical Institutes, being a regular consultant to the European Commission, the World Bank and several United Nations agencies.
