PARIS21 Spring Meetings: Going local to leave no one behind: The role of sub-national data
22 March, 2023
PARIS21, the Swiss Federal Statistical Office’s Project Rosling and the Canton of Basel are pleased to announce the 2023 Spring Meeting which will focus on the role of sub-national data in leaving no one behind. Low- and middle-income countries are on the frontline of climate change, humanitarian crises and other global challenges. Vulnerable and poor communities, women and girls and marginalised groups are often the hardest-hit and the most susceptible to being left behind. Sub-national data can play a critical role in helping to identify these groups and informing policies and programmes to address their needs, yet countries with low statistical capacity may have to overcome a set of hurdles to leverage local data to their full extent.
