The second United Nations World Data Forum will be hosted by the Federal Competitiveness and Statistics Authority of the United Arab Emirates from 22 to 24 October 2018 in Dubai. The Centre of Excellence is looking forward to engaging with key stakeholders and participating in several sessions – specifically “A new era for Civil Registration and Vital Statistics systems: innovation and transformation to develop capacities, reduce gender inequities, and improve data for the SDGs” on Wednesday October 24th.
Alongside our partners Open Data Watch, we will also be launching a Compendium of Knowledge Briefs on Gender and civil registration and vital statistics. The purpose of the knowledge briefs is to share and promote research and policy papers in gender and CRVS, and to synthesize, publish and socialize key messages, innovative case examples and emerging findings.
