Virtual meeting
Bangkok, Thailand

Open meeting

Stats Cafe no. 26

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.
