The Philippines, through the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), in collaboration with the UN Statistics Division (UNSD), is organizing the 2017 International Conference on Sustainable Development Goals Statistics (ICSDGS) (Twitter: @2017ICSDGS).
Among the event's objectives, the Conference will discuss methodologies, data gaps and use of other data sources, given the numerous SDG indicators that require data disaggregation (geographical, income, sectoral, age, sex, race, ethnicity or other characteristics). The Conference will facilitate a session on improving civil registration systems, administrative records and exploring Big Data, registers, citizen-generated data and other third-party data as potential sources of official statistics for the monitoring of SDGs. And the Conference will serve as a forum for identifying capacity building needs and possible collaboration with international development partners, among others.
dates: 4-6 October 2017
location: Manila, Philippines
