UNSD-DFID Project Meeting with Project Countries

10:00am - 1:00 pm
24 February 2013, Sunday
Venue: DC2 - 1684
United Nations, New York

The UNSD-DFID project focuses on improving national and global data dissemination of national development indicators by assisting countries; to develop further the content and functionality of existing national databases; to acquire experience of using new technologies to exchange these information with national users and the international community (i.e. SDMX); and link this information to the UNSD’s CountryData portal (, part of UNdata, to further raise their availability and visibility.

In order to review progress, evaluate the project at its mid-point and discuss plans for the remainder of the project, project countries were invited to attend this project meeting.
