Webinar Interoperability: a bridge to strengthen data and achieve the SDGs
The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD), the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD) and Cepei, organized this webinar for National Statistical Offices United Nations agencies and government representatives in Latin America.
ABOUT THE EVENT
Interoperability plays an important role by allowing to solve problems through joining up data from different sources in a standardized and contextualized way, reducing the time, effort, and expenses involved in data collection, as well as satisfying the need for internationally comparable, sustainable and disaggregated data.
Together with our partners, and moderated by Cepei, the webinar aimed to identify the opportunities that interoperability offers to strengthen data production for sustainable development, and to meet the challenges Latin American National Statistical Offices face nowadays.
The work carried out by the Collaborative on SDG Data Interoperability, an initiative of the Global Partnership and UNSD, was presented. Latin American stakeholders provided comments on the interoperability maturity model that the initiative is working on. Likewise, INEGI and ECLAC discussed what their experiences have been with regard to interoperability at the national and regional levels.
