Beirut - Lebanon
Bridging the gap between the needs of data users and the capacities of data producers is one of Arab Development Portal’s main priority areas that have been discussed at length in a series of consultation meetings conducted since 2014. These consultation meetings have been key in identifying the competitive advantage of the Arab Development Portal to cater for the changing needs of a diverse audience of internet users concerned with development in the Arab region.
With data considered to be one of the fundamental elements of the accountability framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the online dissemination of SDGs-related indicators is important to widen the participation of development practitioners and engaged citizens and to ultimately enhance the national ownership of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Currently, the Arab Development Portal team is exploring the development of an SDGs tracking tool that allows monitoring global and national indicators and at the same time offers a preliminary assessment of the statistical capacity of Arab countries to report on SDGs pending data availability.
In follow-up to this continuous effort, the ADP is conducting its third workshop with the NSOs of the Arab states to discuss their efforts in improving the statistical framework such that it becomes more conducive to reporting on and monitoring the SDGs.
This workshop will be attended by representatives of NSOs who were either not granted visa to attend the Amman workshop conducted in November 2016 or those who could not make it. It will bring together 2 representatives from Algeria, Comoros (confirmed), Djibouti (confirmed), Kuwait, Lebanon (confirmed), Libya (confirmed), Somali (confirmed), Sudan (confirmed), Syria(confirmed) and Yemen.
