27 to 29 April 2016 | By invitation only

ESCAP and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) jointly hosted a second technical session in follow up to the session on profiling equity focused information held in June 2015.

The consultation was taken place in the broader context of the 2030 SDG Agenda’s emphasis on addressing inequality in all its dimensions. Particularly that "SDG indicators should be disaggregated where relevant by income, sex, age, race, ethnicity, migratory status, disability and geographic location, or other characteristics, in accordance with the Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics" towards “leaving no one behind” in the 2030 Agenda. The objective of the joint working session was to reinforce national statistical systems to report on equity and deprivations facing children, women and other deprived populations in relation to the SDG indicators, to shift from data to information for policy action

The session covered the following themes: 

  1. Understanding the SDG indicator framework and how it relates to children and child deprivations;
  2. Sharing of country progress in South Asia on child deprivation profiling and good practices of equity analysis, dissemination and policy actions; and
  3. Positioning data and information in the knowledge management paradigm and exposure to new tools to shift from data to information.
