Asia-Pacific Stats Café Series: Statistics that Leave No One Behind: Inclusive Data Charter

Submitted by KBOONPRI on Thu, 07/01/2021 - 10:02

Event Background

This Stats Café brought together experts from the Inclusive Data Charter network, including international and regional organizations and national governments, to discuss experiences in producing and using inclusive and disaggregated statistics to progress the Leave No One Behind commitment.

In order to live up to the promise inherent within the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to “Leave No One Behind,” we need timely, comprehensive, and disaggregated data to better understand the situation of the poorest and most marginalized. In the Asia-Pacific region, COVID-19 has further heightened the need for accurate data on marginalized communities as the pandemic has exacerbated socio-economic inequities and disrupted data collection efforts.

While there have been some advances in methodologies on data disaggregation since the launch of the SDGs in 2015, critical challenges remain, including the lack of political will and prioritization of inclusive data, limited coordination and cooperation between data producers -especially around the utilization of existing data, and the complexities of collecting data on hard-to-reach populations.

Submitted by KBOONPRI on Thu, 08/02/2024 - 14:36
Event attendance type
Event Background

Countries in the Asia-Pacific region have indicated they need support to ensure that data and evidence can be presented to and used by policy makers, thus taking evidence to action.

On July 11-12th 2023, Bangladesh had the first consultative meeting on Supporting Evidence to Inform Policy Outcomes in Bangladesh (or Evidence to Action (E2A)). After consultations, the priority topic selected to be the focus of the Bangladesh E2A was Child Marriage and Adolescent Pregnancy.

This National Capacity workshop, to be co-organized by Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics and ESCAP Statistics Division will engage relevant data producers and users and strengthen capacity on bridging the gap between evidence and policy / practice in the E2A cycle.

  • Improved understanding of E2A processes including:
    • Collaborating to identify gender-relevant priority topic area/s.
    • Identifying and analysing relevant existing data on selected priority topic area/s.
    • Synthesizing knowledge, identifying policy implications and articulating policy-driven messages.
    • Generating knowledge products for decision-making such as policy briefs, infographics, etc.
    • Targeting and disseminating knowledge product/s for decision-making.
  • Generating and leveraging collaboration mechanisms for iterative and sustainable improvement and engagement through strengthened networks between data producers and users.
  • Increased skills in critical E2A areas based on capacity needs identified in the consultations.

Asia-Pacific Stats Café Series: Citizen Data: Conceptual Framework, Practical Experiences and Way Forward

Submitted by KBOONPRI on Mon, 13/11/2023 - 12:02
Event attendance type
Event Type
Event Background

Concept note

Over the past decade, countries have made good progress towards meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) but the COVID-19 pandemic has severely disrupted these efforts and even led to reversal of gains in several area1. To that end, there is a critical need for timely, reliable, and disaggregated data, estimates and forecasts, and it is of paramount importance that all stakeholders unite to work on this common agenda.

Citizen data—that is data produced by people or organizations to directly monitor, demand, or drive change on issues that affect them2 —, has the potential to meet this need. In particular, citizen data is able to fill crucial data gaps for vulnerable and marginalized groups, integrating their situations and conditions into statistical production processes. Citizen data also progresses fundamental values namely fairness, openness, inclusiveness, non-discrimination, accountability and transparency in statistics.

Data collection process for citizen data can be initiated by different stakeholders, including national statistical offices (NSOs), civil society organizations (CSOs), community leaders, national human rights institutions (NHRIs) and other state institutions, scientists, or individual citizens. Moreover, citizen data can be integrated into different stages of the data value chain. For instance, CSOs and citizens are often at the forefront of data collection generally focusing on vulnerable and marginalized population groups and ensuring that their voices are heard. CSOs can also engage in collecting citizen data for SDG monitoring and Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) led by NSOs. Finally, NSOs, relevant government agencies, and UN entities can coordinate and facilitate validation processes for citizen data in close collaboration with CSOs and community leaders.

Noting the potential contributions of citizen data in inclusive statistics production, there is a critical need for a comprehensive and inclusive guide on citizen data. To that end, United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) organized an expert group meeting on citizens’ contribution to data in September 2023 with the specific objective of deriving insights from experts for the development of a Conceptual Framework on Citizens’ Contribution to Data. More specifically, the meeting allowed participants to review and discuss a draft Conceptual Framework on Citizens’ Contribution to Data, discuss ways and steps to operationalize the Conceptual Framework, and identify solutions to key challenges in engaging with citizens in data processes such as data quality, building trust and keeping engagement sustainable.

2Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data, “World Data Forum: Citizen-generated data for inclusive data ecosystems,” 2023, https://www.data4sdgs.org/world-data-forum-citizen-generated-data-inclusive-data-ecosystems

ESCAP also organized a side event at the expert group meeting with a specific focus on the use of citizen data in health and well-being statistics. At the side event, WHO and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) presented their latest publication on key processes and considerations for the use of citizen science and data for the production of health and well-being statistics. Representatives from Philippine Statistics Authority and Kenya National Bureau of Statistics also shared their experiences including the processes and outcomes of using citizen data in producing health and wealth-being statistics, challenges faced, and lessons learned.

Prior to the expert group meeting, ESCAP and UNSD also co-organized a VNR Lab on the use of citizen-generated data to leave no one behind at the High-Level Political Forum in July 2023. The Lab focused mainly on initiatives designed to harness the power of citizen data to improve VNR and SDG reporting processes and facilitated insightful experience sharing by countries in Asia and the Pacific and beyond.

These events offer up-to-date information on the progression of citizen data as a viable non-traditional data source in official statistics and SDG reporting. Nonetheless, they were all invite-only events which limited the sizes of audience. Therefore, ESCAP and UNSD organized this Stats Café session to:

  1. Present on insights and outcomes of discussions occurred throughout the three events;
  2. Share country experience with using citizen data in official statistics and/or SDG reporting;
  3. Share updates on the development of the Conceptual Framework on Citizens’ Contribution to Data and way forward for citizen data.

Participants are requested to register and obtain a visitor’s badge with ID picture on the first day of the meeting, i.e. Monday, 19 November 2018 between 08.00 hours and 09.00 hours. This is done at the Registration Counter located on the ground floor of the UNCC. Participants who are not able to register during the time indicated above are requested to do so immediately upon their arrival at UNCC and before going to the conference room.
