JAMAICA: Regional Workshop on Strengthening Statistical Capacity for Census and SDGs

12 April 2019

The Regional Workshop on Strengthening Statistical Capacity for Census and SDGs in the Caribbean took place from the 8th -11th April 2019 in Kingston, Jamaica. Jointly supported by UNFPA and ECLAC, the workshop covered the following key aspects of the different stages of the census process: planning, data collection, producing census outputs and the utilization of census data.

 

 

The regional workshop featured presentations on best practice and discussions in which participants had the opportunity to share their experiences as they prepare for the 2020 round of censuses in the Caribbean. Feedback from the workshop was very positive - participants saw great value in working with like-minded people from so many countries and benefited from the opportunity to network and to learn from one another.
