This workshop is a follow-up to the first meeting of RSG-PSS held on 28-31 August 2017 (http://www.unescap.org/events/first-meeting-regional-steering-group-popu...). It focused on advancing the first goal in the RSG-PSS work plan in enabling policy environment and understanding requirements for disaggregated statistics in supporting implementation of inclusive development policies.

The workshop reviewed the results of pilot studies applying existing assessment tools in selected policy areas; identify challenges and propose recommendations for developing a generic tool and guidelines to be used by NSOs to assess and prioritize needs for statistical information on sub-populations that support implementation of inclusive development programmes in different sectors.
