Trieste Workshop

This high-level meeting marked the culmination of the more than 100 hours of intensive training on modelling tools for sustainable development, demonstrating how they can help improve policy support and decision making by unveiling the interlinkages, trade-offs and synergies within and across different policy areas; raising awareness about the time commitment required for capacity building; exchanging views on the usefulness of the tools, identify gaps; and discussing the way forward. 

 

Workshop on Ageing and Age-disaggregated Data, 22-24 August 2017, Winchester, UK

Without better data there is a significant risk of compounding inequalities and locking the most vulnerable and marginalised out of development. A working group on Ageing and Age-disaggregated Data at the UN Statistical Commission engaged key stakeholders from national statistical offices, government, academia, civil society and the private sector to share knowledge and experience on the core issues of age-disaggregated data and ageing statistics, and to advance consensus for the establishment of the Titchfield Group.
